The Lonely Londoners

The Lonely Londoners book cover

Inside the hall was a real jam session. The girls stand up in groups here and there, and the boys liming out by the bar, some of them with their girls. Like Marble Arch in the summer, any of Harris fete is a get-together of all the boys, wherever it happen to be.

Big City, Galahad, Daniel, Cap, Bart, all of them leave the night work they have to hit this fete, and Moses as usual like a minor master of ceremonies with the boys, giving them all the latest lowdown and ballad as they coast a drink.

The Lonely Londoners
Samuel Selvon. Allan Wingate, 1956.
