London Calling tells the story of black and Asian literary London, tracing the escapades, fortune making, and self-expansion of these forgotten writers.

It is a joyful and often rapturous work, a love letter to the capital, a teeming and complex mix of social and cultural history seen through the imagination and experience of great black and Asian writers. London Calling gets to the heart of the immigration impulse, and evokes the dreams and adventures of those who have sought refuge and asylum in the cradle of Empire.
