“Orwellian”—Night Haunts reviewed in the Independent

Missing

Sukhdev Sandhu's Night Haunts garners yet more praise, this time in the Independent.

Sandhu's model for nocturnal rambles was The Nights of London, a 1926 volume from HV Morton, “a beat—not Beat—journo”. The result is a luminous series of sketches in Orwellian style, from cabbies and sewer flushers ("fat is the bane of their lives") to exorcists and Thames bargers ("Nobody knows we're here. Nobody"). This book is an atmospheric and witty companion, especially for those who, like Sandhu, spend the dark hours awake.
