Om forfatteren

Rosemary Gray is a lifelong London enthusiast, whose career has been in writing, editing and publishing. She has compiled collections of short stories, poems, fairy tales and essays for various publishers, and has created the Everlasting Diary and the Alice in Wonderland Everlasting Diary for the Macmillan Collector’s Library. The gathering together of the material for this illustrated literary companion was a challenging task as so many artists have illustrated parts of the city and so many authors have written about London – many praising, many decrying – but the final presentation has achieved a balance of opinions and comments from a host of the famous and the less famous.
