Synopsis

John Lanchester, author of Whoops! and Capital takes us on a whirlwind tour of the Tube to show its secrets, just how much we take for granted about it, and what we're really talking about, since we so often do talk about it. In short, he shows what a marvel it is - part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin. Praise for John Lanchester: "If you want to look like a rock of good sense, a person who is deep and wise and worried, then I suggest...John Lanchester". Colm Toibin 'Genius' India Knight 'Razor sharp' John O'Farrell John Lanchester is the best-selling author of, among others, Capital and Whoops.
