Description - The Dilly by Jeremy Reed

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.
