Item description for From Here to Here: Stories Inspired by London's Circle Line by John Simmons...
Taking inspiration from the 27 stops of the London Underground's Circle Line, this collection of essays and poems provides a unique exploration of one of the world's great cities. The Circle Line defines the heart of London, and its stops are some of the most recognizable for visitors and locals alike: Notting Hill, Paddington, Sloane Square, South Kensington, Westminster. Twenty-seven writers, all of whom have a special love for London, were selected and assigned one Circle Line station each. They write about the under- and above-ground surroundings of the stations, the histories of the locations, and the cultural, social, commercial, and political influences that have defined each famous place. As a collection, this celebration of the amazing diversity of London provides a guide of greater depth, going beyond the monuments and buildings to the soul of the city. Each writer's interpretation has its own style, ensuring an experience of London that is enriching and unpredictable.
