One of our readers, Lucy Osborn, contacted us this week with her top three books on London. Lucy grew up in the UK, but has lived in Australia since 1990.
Lucy's favourite is:
Thames: The Biography by Peter Ackroyd
Voices from Dickens' London by Michael Paterson
The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
In the count down to London 2012 we have been looking at books that reveal the real London. So far this week our list has included Tideline, White Teeth, Saturday, Thames: A biography, Voices from Dickens' London and The Sense of an Ending.
Any other suggestions to add to our list?
