2 - 4 weeks availability
"One afternoon in January 1995, as I drove along Western Avenue, I did what I had never done before: i parked the car in a side-street and walked on to the road..." In "Leadville", Ed Platt tells the story of Western Avenue from the optimism of its construction in the 1920s to its partial demolition seventy years later. It is a tale of the city and the traffic, of suburbia and the dreams of its inhabitants, and of our senseless and all-consuming love affair with the motor car. 'Platt has created a drama that is not only Orwellian in its attention to what you might call the state of the nation ...but almost Dickensian in the recording of the colour and pathos of its inhabitants' - Tim Lott, "The Times."
Edward Platt was born in 1968. He lives in London where he works as a journalist.
