Portobello Road: Lives of a Neighbourhood
"A wonderful study of this iconic London street." -- Michael Bond, author of Paddington Bear 'Underneath the veneer of hedge funders, boutiques and gym-fit wives lurk traces of the original Portobello rediscovered by Julian Mash. From the last costermongers in the vegetable market to the antiques traders and music scene, the author uncovers a distinctive world and vibe that could only belong to this street.' The Lady '... you need this book on your shelf' The Londonist "a fascinating look at a fascinating part of London" -- Robert Elms BBC London "elegy for a lost community" Evening Standard "a charming addition to the canon. The 'Lives' in the subtitle - a colourful cast of rock stars, bohemians, hustlers and slum landlords - are brought to life in such detail, you can almost smell the jerk chicken." Easyjet Traveller JULIAN MASH graduated from the University of East Anglia with an MA in Creative Writing in 2011. He spent much of his twenties running a record label and playing in a band before becoming a bookseller. He has lived and worked in and around Portobello Road for the last ten years, half of which was spent working at the Travel Bookshop, a local institution and the inspiration for the bookshop in the film Notting Hill. He is currently manager of the Idler Academy and literary events manager for End of the Road Festival. He was a recipient of a Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction in 2013.
