Reviews

"After his mammoth, shamanic aria London: the Biography, the remarkable writer Peter Ackroyd has produced a nimble, uproarious pocket history of sex in his beloved metropolis" -- Alasdair Lees * Independent *
"Ackroyd has an encyclopaedic knowledge of London, and a poet's instinct for its strange, mesmerising drives and urges ... Queer City contains something to alarm or fascinate on every page" -- Craig Brown * The Mail on Sunday *
"Droll, provocative and crammed to busting with startling facts" -- Simon Callow * The Guardian *
"If there was a prize for the most evocative or salacious chapter headings, then Peter Ackroyd's new book, Queer City, would be the undisputed victor. They capture the rudery and naughtiness, although not the erudition of this entertaining history of the 'queer' experience in London" -- Robbie Millen * The Times *
"Succinct, perceptive and robust" -- Rupert Christiansen * Daily Telegraph *
