London Historical Fiction

Few would argue with the choice of Charles Dickens as the finest London novelist in history. But there's much more to London's fictional past. W Somerset Maugham's Liza of Lambeth is a very fine portrait of working class Victorian London, we meet Dr Samuel Johnson, originator of the Oxford English Dictionary, in Beryl Bainbridge's According to Queeney, Elizabethan England comes to life and Christopher Marlowe meets his death in Anthony Burgess' A Dead Man in Deptford... no matter which era intrugues you, there's a great novel to give you the flavour of life in London's past.
