City of the mind

City of the Mind is the second novel by Booker Prize winning author Penelope Lively.'This is the city in which everything is simultaneous. There is no yesterday, nor tomorrow, merely weather, and decay, and construction.'In London's changing heartland, architect Matthew Halland is aware of how the past and the present blend. It stirs memories of his boyhood, the early years of his daughter Jane and the failed marriage that he has almost put behind him. Here too is the London of prehistory, of Georgian elegance, of the Blitz. But Matthew is occupied with constructing a new future for London in Docklands, and with it he begins to forge new beginnings of his own.'A glorious novel' Observer'The descriptions of the London Blitz are achingly real' Sunday TelegraphPenelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children.
