John Bowen, TLS 17/12/2010 Review from previous edition Robert Douglas-Fairhurst has a strong sense of the contradictory forces at work in Mayhew's writing, which he compares successively to a peep show, a collection of dramatic monologues and an early work of sociology...this selection is still as long as a fair-sized novel, with helpful notes and a springy, suggestive introduction that captures the energy and variety of Mayhew's world.
Simon Heffer, Telegraph 14/01/2011 Should be required reading not just for lovers of Dickens, but for anyone who wishes to understand how our nineteenth century truly was.
Ian Thomson, Evening Standard 02/12/2010 superb new edition
Michael Dirda, Washington Post 26/01/2011 superb introduction
Roy Hattersley, New Statesman 18/10/2010 some of the best descriptive writing in the English language
