              London - The Biography: Collected Edition
               

              London - The Biography: Collected Edition (Audio, Collected and abridged ed)

              By Ackroyd, Peter; Read by Callow, Simon

              Much of Peter Ackroyd's work has been concerned with the life and past of London but here, as a culmination, is his definitive account of the city. For him it is an organism with its own laws of growth and change, so he regards this as a biography rather than a history.
