SHOREDITCH: BOOK LAUNCH – NOCTURNAL WANDERER – JACOB DREYER

Jacob Dreyer’s Nocturnal Wanderer is not a novel, really. Nor is it a diary. Occasionally it seems a treatise, or an exploration of the city, or of the soul of a young educated bourgeois. Sometimes it rears toward a charming, almost naïve, romanticism; sometimes to an almost painful ennui; at other times it is cynical, bitter, modern.
