Quotes About London Riots

Emmas mid-twenties had brought a second adolescence even more self-absorbed and doom-laden than the first one. Why dont you just come home, sweetheart? her mum had said on the phone last night, using her quavering, concerned voice, as if her daughter had been abducted. Your rooms still here. Theres jobs at Debenhams - and for the first time she had been tempted. Once, she thought she could conquer London. She had imagined a whirl of literary salons, political engagement, larky parties, bittersweet romances conducted on Thames embankments. She had intended to form a band, make short films, write novels, but two years on slim volume of verse was no fatter, and nothing really good had happened to her since shed been baton-charged at Poll Tax Riots.
— David Nicholls —

I'd been reading Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year when the [1992 Los Angeles] riots broke out and I began to see them both - L.A. and the London plague - as the same event. A time of crisis. A time when rich and poor get thrown together - and, suddenly one sees alternatives. I began to think about what happens when the containment of a presumed danger through the regimentation of space breaks down, such as when South-Central L.A. began to invade Beverly Hills.

— Naomi Wallace
