Beautiful Idiots and Brilliant Lunatics - signed by author Rob Baker


"I love London society!
I think it has immensely improved.
It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics.
Just what Society should be."

 - An Ideal Husband, OSCAR WILDE

Entertaining and engagingly written by Rob Baker, Beautiful Idiots and Brilliant Lunatics explores fascinating and forgotten stories from London in the twentieth century.

A cast of suffragettes, fascists, de-frocked girl-crazed priests, 'Nancy-boys', showgirls, prostitutes, murderers, nippies and beauty queens features in stories containing a myriad of unexpected tangents and untold facts that cover the width and breadth of London.
