"What a life! A memoir of London in the oral tradition. Sidney Day, a true vagabond, living on his wits, dodging rozzers, turning any trick and becoming a conscientious objector during the war years in order to stay at home to look after his family. Reading 'London Born' was like meeting Sidney Day in person and getting a true, first hand account of London without the history lessons."


Hugo Hamilton, author of 'The Speckled People'
