Review Author: Tanya 52booksorbust



I actually read this book while I was in London and it captures the spirit, politics and multiculturalism of the city perfectly. Capital is set largely on a single street, Pepys Road and it recounts the lives of those who live and work there – a meter maid, a construction worker, a banker and his wife, and aging widow and the family that keeps the shop at the end of the block. It is an extremely good read that was written with intent.
