An Excellent Book...

Here's my book recommendation of the day/week/month/year*:

(*depending on how soon I decide to recommend another one!)

"Tarquin Hall had never set foot in the East End. But returning to London after ten years abroad - and priced out of the leafy suburb of his childhood - he finds himself living in an attic above a Bangladeshi sweatshop on Brick Lane. A grimy skylight provides the only window on his new world, where drug dealers and prostitutes parade openly and police sirens wail through the night... But below Brick Lane's unlovely surface [they] encounter a rich human landscape."

It's great - buy it!
