Description
If Paris is the city of love, then London is the city of lust, says Catharine Arnold in her third book on the capital, in which she turns her gaze to the city's relationship with vice through the ages. As early as the 2nd century, London was notorious for its raucous festivities and disorderly houses, and throughout the centuries the bawdy side of life has taken easy root and flourished. From the bathhouses and brothels of Roman Londinium through the stews and Molly houses of the 17th and 18th centuries, the flagellants of Victorian London, and the sexual underground of today, Arnold takes us on an entertaining journey through the fleshpots of London.
