The #London Reading List No.14: The Buddha of Suburbia

OUR NEW SERIES! Throughout March & April 2015 we'll be compiling our definitive London Reading List. 

We've asked London Walks Guides & London Walkers to recommend a favourite book or story, and we've also raided the archives here at The Daily Constitutional to bring a rich and varied selection of London-themed and London-set reading matter.

Whether you live here in London, work here, play here or if you are in the throws of planning a trip to visit us here, these are the books you need to read. As usual, you can give us a shout with your own recommendations – thrillers, literary classics, biographies, anthologies, anything! – at the usual email address, via Twitter or Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.



No.14: The Buddha Of Surburbia by hanif Kureshi

Recommended by Kevin Flude

If you like David Bowie and are interested in rock and roll and a multicultural upbringing in the suburbs of London, this is the book for you! 






Kevin Flude is a former Museum of London archaeologist, who is now the Director of the Old Operating Theatre Museum. He has enjoyed leading Guided Walks since the late 1970's… and is something of an old punk, on the quiet, it would seem. His blog is And Did Those Feet.




You can hear a little more from Kevin on our London Walks Podcast here…





A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
