James FitzGerald

James FitzGerald

Although born a Londoner, James was exiled at an early age to the Home Counties, and for some years lived in great indignity in the Optimistic London Borough of Sevenoaks. He joined the site in search of an intellectual respite from his day job in political television, and writes on history, theatre, and art.  His favourite things about the city are the Courtauld Gallery, Fitzrovia, and the sharp edges of the Barbican. His least favourite thing about the city is when people say they live in an area which is actually just the name of a railway station, like "I live in Waterloo East".
