Goodbye to Soho by Clayton Littlewood; Londons modern-day Tales of the City -

Tue, 19 Jun 2012 17:05:25 EST

ADVANCED REVIEWS FOR GOODBYE TO SOHO

'Clayton has been seduced by Soho's sleazy magic and through him so are we.' – Marc Almond

'As scurrilous and entertaining as ever.' — Rupert Smith (Man's World)

'Like Isherwood's Berlin, Littlewood's Soho comes to life right off the page.' – Jonathan Kemp (London Triptych)

'That dirty old whore Soho has no better pimp than Clayton Littlewood.' —Tim Fountain (Resident Alien)

'Beautifully composed vignettes...observed by a ravenous, compassionate, amused voyeur of the first rank.' – Nicholas de Jongh (Plague Over England)

BACKGROUND

Clayton's books both began life as a blog with a cult following which became a popular column in The London Paper. His diaries are based on his personal experiences of running the Dirty White Boy clothes store with his partner Jorge Betancourt in Soho's Old Compton Street. Clayton captures a memorable moment in Soho's history and his writing finds humour and affection for the prostitutes, street cleaners, transsexuals, bag ladies and shoplifters that he encountered on one the most colourful street corners in the world. 

Reviews compared his first book (Dirty White Boy) to the diaries of Samuel Pepys, Virginia Woolf and Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories. In 2009 it was named Gay Times Book of the Year and was endorsed by celebrities such as Sir Elton John, Stephen Fry, Holly Johnson, Boy George and Sebastian Horsley. In April 2009 Clayton turned the book into a play. It premiered at the Trafalgar Studios in London's West End and starred Clayton and the actor David Benson. It sold out. The play returned a year later for an extended run receiving reviews from, among others, Nicholas de Jongh and Paul Gambaccini.

Now Clayton's written a sequel, Goodbye to Soho

PRAISE FOR DIRTY WHITE BOY: TALES OF SOHO  (Clayton's first book, published in 2008)

'Touching, funny and poignant.' — Sir Elton John

'A 21st-century Samuel Pepys of the Soho subculture.' — Holly Johnson

'Funny, perceptive, sexy, exquisitely observed.' — Stephen Fry

'Soho is like an upturned dustbin and he like a drunk rummaging through it. He shows us that all that glitters is not gold. And all that smells is not garbage.' — Sebastian Horsley, author of Dandy in the Underworld
