Ten new writers prove that London swings again, and offer surprising perspectives on the metropolitan experience. Dagenham girl gangs, a Turkish melon truck with a suspicious cargo, canine revenge on the Underground, an unusual reworking of the Rapunzal fairy tale - hugely entertaining stories in a book brimming over with variety and colour.

Does the Sun Rise Over Dagenham? is for anyone attracted by the buzz, the passion , the weirdness, the inspiration to be found in the big city.
