This is London

Ben Judah
Josh Glancy

In This is London: Life and Death in the World City, Ben Judah takes the lid off a new London, where over one-third of its population are immigrants, immersing himself in their sometimes hidden worlds. From the richest to the poorest, he takes us on a tour of this ever-changing city, also asking where do Jews now fit in? With Sunday Times feature writer Josh Glancy.

Ben Judah is the author of Fragile Empire: How Russia Fell In and Out of Love with Vladimir Putin. His work has been featured in The FT, The Economist, Prospect, Standpoint and Foreign Policy.                                                        

Josh Glancy is a feature writer and the deputy editor of The Sunday Times News Review. He contributes regular columns to The JC and reviews books for The Literary Review.

This event will feature a live speech-to-text service provided by Stagetext for deaf, deafened and hard-of-hearing people.
