Set in a neighbourhood that was created by the criss-crossing of railway lines created by rival companies, Stella Duffy‘s novel  “The Room of Lost Things” is a wonderful atmospheric evocation of place, worthy of being explored in our next Between the Lines reading walking book club.

It is as much a love story as a social critique of multi-cultural London.  The story of Robert Sutton, the owner of a well-established dry cleaners in Loughborough Junction, that has witnessed the comes and goings of the local residents, and has built up a secret knowledge of their lives and livelihoods.

Ever wondered what happens to things left behind in the pockets of items taken to the dry cleaners?  Well Robert Sutton knows only too well.
