Description

The Dilly – A History of Piccadilly Rent Boys is the first book to really explore the history of male prostitution at Piccadilly Circus. ‘The Dilly’ has long been London’s principal location for selling sex and this is a previously undocumented slice of London underground history. Dating from Oscar Wilde’s notorious use of the location for pick-ups through to Francis Bacon’s equal attraction to rough trade and right up to recent history, it is written with Jeremy Reed’s signature flair for acute visual imagery.
