Description
Collected writings – from the historic to the contemporary - on the London bus, London’s most loved and iconic means of transport. A vital component of the city’s infrastructure, London buses are firmly embedded in London’s culture, written about, sung about, joked about, filmed, painted (and painted on), advertised and celebrated in myriad ways. A delightful and surprising selection of writing celebrating the changing experience but timeless act of taking the bus. From historic contributions by E.M. Forster, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf, to wide-ranging contemporary reflections, including Welsh filmmaker Iain Sinclair, writer Will Self and Diane Abbott MP.
