Overview

Described as ‘an iconic chronicle’, The Lonely Londoners uses the voices of West Indian immigrants in 1950s’ London. Whilst the plotline and writing style are not straightforward, the set of vignettes immerse the reader in the sounds and rhythms of London and West Indian culture. We will look the writing style, the voices and the key issues in a discussion-led class.
