Monday, 9 July 2012
I'll push the book that my assistants... I mean I wrote today, in case any literary readers are reading this entry.

"To fully grasp the essence of this great city, we need to learn more about its people. London Mayor Boris Johnson profiles 18 famous Londoners in "Johnson's Life of London: The People Who Made the City That Made the World" (Riverhead Books, 2012). The book starts from the days when "a bunch of pushy Italians" created Londinium, and it continues through a procession of the famous and infamous, the brilliant and the bizarre - from Hadrian to Shakespeare and Samuel Johnson and from Florence Nightingale to The Rolling Stones and Keith Richards."
Amazing how I found the time to research and write this masterpiece?
