Who were the people who built this glamorous, dirty, infinite metropolis, and what is it about their descendants that makes London such an exhilarating experience today? We are the Londoners offers both a historical backdrop and insight about the British Empire and the immigration that has created London’s unique fabric. There is no doubt: every impression you have had about this city will change as you read this book.

The book is just out and has already gotten a raving review in Dagbladet: “Nazneen Khan-Østrem has written the ultimate book about Great Britain’s capitol…It is a history book, a travel guide, a gastronomic walk with dishes from around the world, a reflective sociological analysis, a story about music, theater and visual arts, and not least a driving good story (…) Never have I read a book that to such a degree takes the pulse of a big city.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
