• Mesmeric... This book is not just for London enthusiasts. Tindall has demonstrated a genius for a certain kind of social history that, in shining a light on one small place, illuminated a huge amount around... A rare instance of a history book that, in its optimism about the indomitable spirit of the place, raises the hairs on the back of your neck.

    Sinclair McKay, Sunday Telegraph
  • Fascinating... Gillian Tindall brilliantly deploys contemporary observations to bring the centuries alive.

    Christopher Howse, Tablet
  • Delightful... Tindall's story is truthful and unexaggerated, combining elegantly elegiac prose with imaginative empathy and descriptive power.

    Jessica Mann, Literary Review
