In the style of Studs Terkel (Working, Hard Times, The Good War) and Dave Isay (Listening Is an Act of Love), Londoners offers upÂ the stories, the gripes, the memories, and the dreams of those in the great and vibrant British metropolis who â€œlove it, hate it, live it, left it, and long for it,â€ from a West End rickshaw driver to a Soldier of the Guard at Buckingham Palace to a recovering heroin addict seeing Big Ben for the very first time. Published just in time for the 2012 London Olympic Games, Londoners is a glorious literary celebration of one of the worldâ€™s truly great cities.
