Publisher Description

Turn-of-the-century London was fertile ground for aspiring artists and writers, and in this 1912 volume, English author and journalist Arthur Ransome provides a fascinating firsthand view of London's artistic subculture in this period. Ransome "make[s] real on paper the strange, tense, joyful and despairing, hopeful and sordid life that is lived in London by young artists and writers" through vivid depictions of Chelsea art studios, Soho coffeehouses, tavern crawls, and numerous other amusements, occupations, and haunts of avant-garde London. With stylized illustrations and richly descriptive text, Bohemia in London brings this unique side of early twentieth-century London to life.
