A compelling account of the East London melting pot.In the heart of Londons East End, Spitalfields is rich in history. Its Huguenot silk weavers houses are now sweatshops where Bengali tailors follow in the path of an earlier wave of Jewish immigrants or homes for a middle class attracted by the neighborhoods architectural splendors and its location immediately adjacent to Londons financial center.

William Taylor offers a perceptive and sympathetic portrait of Londons most fascinating melting pot.Spitalfields, with its immigrants and yuppies, property speculators and old working-class inhabitants, is much more than a London neighborhood. With its urban decay and regeneration, artists and beggars, it could be an inner-city area almost anywhere in Europe or North America. This Bright Field brings alive the conflicting realities of the modern city in a refreshingly humane literary debut.
