Queer City: Gay London from the Romans to the Present Day

Peter Ackroyd

Rave
Josh Baines,
THUMP (VICE)
...the best book you'll read about night life this year.
Positive
Caleb Crain,
The New York Times Book Review
That thrill is reprised in Peter Ackroyd’s Queer City, which inventories two millenniums of lesbians, gays, trans people and other queers who have lived in London.
Positive
Robbie Millen,
The Times
If there was a prize for the most evocative or salacious chapter headings, then Peter Ackroyd’s new book, Queer City, would be the undisputed victor.
Mixed
Simon Callow,
The Guardian
His book is predictably droll, provocative and crammed to bursting with startling facts and improbable names.
Positive
Kirkus
Spanning centuries, the book is a fantastically researched project that is obviously close to the author’s heart.
