Mother London by Michael Moorcock

Set against the backdrop of London's post-war years through the 1980s, the novel weaves together the lives of three individuals who have been profoundly affected by the city's cultural and social evolution. As they navigate their personal struggles with mental health, identity, and the rapidly changing urban landscape, their stories intersect in a tapestry that captures the essence of London's spirit. The narrative delves into the characters' memories and experiences, exploring the themes of resilience, community, and the enduring impact of place on the human psyche. Through their interconnected tales, the book paints a vivid portrait of a metropolis that is as much a character as the people who inhabit it, highlighting the city's capacity to both inspire and consume those who call it home.
