Dirty old river...

Today's book I would most like to read is this one. How my wish list grows.
I've been a huge admirer of Peter Ackroyd ever since Hawksmoor first knocked me for six. I haven't enjoyed all his books equally but I love London, a Biography so much that vast as it is, I've read it twice. I also love his biography of Dickens, even though I think that Claire Tomalin is right and he is wrong about Ellen Ternan.
