David Long Leaving a first-class University with second-class degree, David Long has been a writer and journalist since 1983. His work has appeared in the Sunday Times and its magazine, the Sunday Mirror, the London Evening Standard, and on television and radio. Whilst a columnist for the Sunday People he created a popular weekly cartoon strip which appeared in the Times each Saturday, and between times has written for a wide variety of magazines in Britain and abroad. An award-winning ghostwriter, David has published a number of books under his own name too, their titles reflecting a love for the city and an apparently unquenchable thirst for stories about the quirkier, lesser known aspects of its long history, continually changing streetscape and hugely diverse architecture and heritage. These include Spectacular Vernacular: London's 100 Most Extraordinary Places, a sequel Tunnels, Towers And Temples: London's 100 Strangest Places, and most recently Hidden City: The Secret Alleys, Courts and Yards of London's Square Mile.
