David Long biography
Well received by reviewers and readers alike, David Long's books on London include Spectacular Vernacular: London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings, a sequel Tunnels, Towers & Temples: London's 100 Strangest Places, and the popular Little Book of London. The trio reflects the author's longstanding interest in the quirkier, lesser known aspects of the city, its long history, streetscape and architecture, and since 2006 he has published a number of other books on related subjects together with two more volumes in the Little Book series. A writer and journalist since graduating in the 1980s, and more recently working as an award-winning ghostwriter, David has appeared regularly in the Times, the Sunday Times and its magazine, the Sunday Mirror, Sunday People and London Evening Standard, and on television and radio.
