Shortlisted for the Whitbread prize, MOTHER LONDON is a dazzling journey
through the heart of a city that the author loved. Spanning generations
of characters across a variety of boroughs from the Blitz to the
mid-eighties, this is a book about the real London that tourists will
never find, a London which is being erased by the spread of high-rise
flats and shining skyscrapers. Following a group of released mental
patients across the years and streets of London, Moorcock creates a
vivid impressionistic portrait of the city, from its downtrodden pubs to
its green parks.
All of the lead characters hear voices - but are they the murmurings of their damaged minds, or the true voice of the city?
