Ben Judah, author of This Is London, is an acclaimed foreign correspondent who turned his reporter's gaze on home, immersing himself in the hidden world of London's immigrant populations, talking to oligarchs, beggars, bankers, carers and witch-doctors about their chosen city. He talks to Suzanne about London as a place of hopes dashed and realised, where people come to live, work, fall in love, raise children, grow old and die.
