By William Leith
William Leith, writer of The Hungry Years and Bits of Me Are Falling Apart, tells, in A Northern Line Minute, the darkly funny stories of his escapades at the Tube - a part of a chain of twelve books tied to the twelve traces of the London Underground.
The Northern Line is the Black Line, and William's adventure of it definitely displays that. It's the road on which he has fought together with his female friend, misplaced jobs, watched soccer groups lose and been caught underground. It's a narrative of London existence.
