England After Dark

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In this startling and often moving portrait of England after dark, Geoffrey Beattie reveals a world unknown to most of us after we have retired for the evening. As a brilliant investigative journalist he has plumbed the depths of the vice and squalor of our great cities, talking to prostitutes and accompanying the vice squad on their night-time patrol. He experiences, too, the companionship of the night as he travels from Grimsby to London with a building worker who is prepared to commute so far for just £200 per week. He watches the night out with a pensioner, old and lonely, meets up with a medium, is introduced to the world of professional arm wrestling, and sees how an air stewardess copes with her exhaustion.
