Notting Hill, Baker Street, King’s Cross, Westminster … the Circle Line transports us to and from many of London’s most famous places, as well as some of its obscure corners (Temple, Euston Road, Aldgate). The 31 chapters of this book, each by a different writer, explore the territory around the Circle Line’s stations and the network that connects them. Through fiction, poetry, memoir and reportage, they bring to life the extraordinary spirit of this complex, demanding, inspiring city.
There are 31 original stories about London, with contributions from Simon Armitage (Selected Poems, The White Stuff), Martin Gorst (Measuring Eternity), Ian Marchant (Parallel Lines, In Southern Waters) and John Simmons (My Sister’s A Barista, Dark Angels).
From Here to Here is a vibrant exploration of a place rich in stories and history, and teeming with plots and characters. It’s the prefect companion for any journey, but especially one underground.
