Thomas Burke paints an enduring portrait of London's East End At the beginning of the twentieth century, the East End of London was a filthy and violent neighborhood, a place where a man was more likely to get a knife in his stomach than a good dinner. It was worlds away from the fashionable district it has become more than a century later. In this gripping collection of stories, author Thomas Burke traverses the area and offers glimpses of life in Limehouse. One tale portrays the unusual friendship that develops between an immigrant and a girl who has recently been beaten by her father. Another follows a down-on-his-luck boxer looking for one last chance. In all of the pieces, Burke displays the beauty inherent in humanity, no matter the squalor in which it resides.
