Angel Pavement
J. B. Priestley


Angel Pavement is one of the great London novels; it is a vivid picture of ordinary London life before the war at the time of the Great Depression. First published in 1930, it is a social panorama of the city seen largely through the eyes of the employees of the firm Twigg & Dersingham, on the first floor of No. 8, Angel Pavement. Business is bad and getting worse. The firm is fighting for its life and its staff are gripped by the fear of insolvency and redundancy. Into their midst descends the mysterious and charming Mr. Golspie and his beautiful daughter, Lena. Together they set in train a sequence of events that will transform the lives of everyone who works there.
