The Lambs of London - Peter AckroydChatto & Windus, 2004, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ. Nearly made it onto my own, personal, shelves this one as it is in lovely condition.
The Lambs of London brilliantly creates an urban world of scholars and entrepreneurs, actors and theatre managers, a world in which a clever son will stop at nothing to impress his showman father, and no one knows quite what to believe. Can Mary Lamb - vulnerable, sheltered, idealistic - survive such an introduction to the many frailties of human nature? Ingenious and vividly alive, The Lambs of London is a poignant, gripping novel of betrayal and deceit, a masterly re-enactment of London life which keeps the reader guessing until the end. 216pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
