Description

From Gilbert and George to the Kray Twins, from Cockney costermongers to cocky young bands posing in front of Banksy graffiti, let Bafta-winning writer Alan Gilbey take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of another kind of London. This is a book of history walks like no other (one's on a train for a start) written by a life-long east-ender. Packed with facts, lies, sights, insights, bad jokes and more than a few strong opinions, this is an insider's guide to London's most exciting cultural quarter - perfect for people who wouldn't normally be seen dead with a book like this. Based on the author's cult theatrical tours - and illustrated with maps, cartoons, subtly subverted period photographs and anything else the author felt like throwing in - East End Backpassages is irreverent, pertinent and very funny; the antidote to Albert Square and all those bloody Jack the Ripper tours...
