East End Backpassages

East End Backpassages

by Alan Gilbey


3 New & Used Starting at $12.23


Let Bafta-winning writer Alan Gilbey take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of another kind of London. This is a book of history walks like no other (one's on a train for a start) written by a life-long east-ender. Packed with facts, lies, sights, insights, bad jokes, and strong opinions, this is an insider's guide to London's most exciting cultural quarter. Based on the author's cult theatrical tours—and illustrated with maps, cartoons, subtly subverted period photographs and anything else the author felt like throwing in—East End Backpassages is irreverent, pertinent and very funny; the antidote to Albert Square and all those bloody Jack the Ripper tours.
