Sobre o livro
London of the mind, the heart and the eye is displayed, discussed and dissected in this classic work of 1962. With eloquence and understated wit, V S Pritchett presents a pithy, knowledgeable distillation of the essential London - a panorama of its history, art, literature and daily life. Here is the city that Londoners know, a paradox of grandeur and grime, the locus of bustling markets and tranquil parks, of palaces and pubs, of docks and railway depots, of the ancient and modern. It is a loving tribute to Londoners past and present.
