TIRED OF LONDON
“Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing
to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London,
he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
Samuel Johnson, 20 September 1777
The above quotation presents a timeless premise for this multi-dimensional book project about London. After all, London is the most densely populated multicultural city in Europe, and the Arts capital of the world. People flood into the city from across the UK and from all corners of the globe to take advantage of its creative energy and opportunities
Tired of London, Tired of Life gets under the skin of the real London. It celebrates the vibrant cultural mix of the world`s favorite city, but also depicts the realities behind its glamorous façade and corroborates the double-edged connotation of Samuel Johnson`s statement about the city. For all the city`s pleasures, there is a substantial minority who are forever tired of London life.
