Elvis Has Left the Building by Tania Kindersley

Elvis Has Left the Building

Tania Kindersley

A conventional theme with uncoventional characters. This is more than just a love/revenge story, it is an insight into the lives of thirty-somethings in London today.

Extract

I walked along Burlington Gardens across Regent Street and into Glasshouse Street, I always liked that name and wondered how it came to it. I took a left turn up Shaftesbury Avenue still empty this early in the day, just a few delivery trucks and men in vans on their way to Chinatown.
