Adrift in Soho - Colin Wilson

"The comic, sad, blazingly honest novel of a young man's search for experience among London's eccentrics, Beats and Artists"

FIRST PUBLISHED IN HARDBACK BY VICTOR GOLLANCZ 1961

Down to London from the Midlands comes Harry, a young man searching for experience. How he finds it, adrift in Soho, is the story of this picaresque and wonderfully entertaining novel

The espresso bars, dingy 'dives', the broken-down tarts and actors, the virago landladies, the unwashed sheets - so good is Mr. Wilson's prose, one sees and smells them all
