East of Islington by Sam Taylor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Welcome to Sam Taylor's world. A single girl with a dog, she moves into a new flat and tumbles headlong into a rollercoaster life in a dodgy postcode with 'potential'. Female friends, hopeless bachelors, would-be artists, poets dressed as reindeers, rabbis, lesbian mums, conflicted vicars, and a bewildered boyfriend, are all thrown together through chance and circumstance. From the moment she arrives and discovers her neighbours rehearsing opera al fresco at midnight, their collective tales of romance, aspiration and embarrassing failure bind them together into one mad, idiosyncratic family. For anyone who has ever lived in a flat or just waved someone off to the city, here is an irrepressible dose of laugh-out-loud humour ...
