Since 1990 Julian Barnes has written a regular 'Letter from London' for the "New Yorker" magazine. These already celebrated pieces cover subjects as diverse as the Lloyd's insurance disaster, the rise and fall of Margaret Thatcher, the troubles of the Royal Family and the hapless Nigel Short in his battle with Gary Kasparov in the 1993 World Chess Finals. With an incisive assessment of Salman Rushdie's plight and an analysis of the implications of being linked to the Continent via the Channel Tunnel, "Letters from London" provides a vivid and telling portrait of Britain in the Nineties.
