Response to Review of Nights Out: Life in Cosmopolitan London

Thanks to Mr. Guyan for his review. I would like to set the record straight about two questions of fact:

I work in Baltimore, but for the past 35 years I have resided in downtown New York in an area that strongly resembles Soho. London is my second home, Baltimore my third.

Apart from reading hundreds of oral history transcripts and many other forms of personal testimony, I personally conducted 15 oral interviews with Sohoites. Excerpts from six of them appear in the text of the book, with the appropriate citations in the endnotes.
