Another Canadian with a 'thing' about London http://www.williamgibsonbooks.com/blog/2007_06_01_archive.asp

WTF is this supposed to mean? 'The ones looking for the city thing as opposed to the gated attractions thing'. Clearly London is larger so has a more diffuse 'centre', arguably the whole of Zone 1 with some chunks of Zone 2.

Does it really just mean that if you are a late 40s Canadian writer who wrote a 'cool' novel 20-odd years ago, it will be easier to find people who will still regard you as cool and take you to 'hip' hang-outs in Berlin or Amsterdam (which I kind of suspect is true)?

[I have pre-ordered his new novel, although given the random snippets on his blog I am not over-hopeful].
