London has become the focus of a ferocious imaginative energy since the rise of Thatcher. The Making of London analyses the body of exceptional work by writers who have unconditionally committed their writing to the many lives of a city undergoing complex transformations. The book traces a major shift in the representation of the capital city, from the postmodern obsession with textuality, the shoring up of London's myths against a declining social fabric, and an exuberant multicultural utopia, to an anxious post-9/11 metropolis that has fallen apart. Is London undone? Authors covered include Maureen Duffy, Michael Moorcock, J. G. Ballard, Angela Carter, Iain Sinclair, Peter Ackroyd, Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Hanif Kureishi, Will Self, Zadie Smith and Monica Ali.
