Mike Read

Radio DJ Mike Read will be releasing his latest book, A Thousand Years of a London Street: Denmark Street, with Cranthorpe Millner Publishers.

Mike Read has signed a publishing agreement for his 40th book to date with Cranthorpe Millner Publishers.

It is a comprehensive dive into the fascinating history of London’s Denmark Street, the first of a series entitled, ‘A Thousand Years of a London Street’.

In Mike’s own words, from the introduction to the book: Denmark Street, and the site on which it was built, has witnessed a millennium of mass murderers, rock stars, inventors, serial killers, queens, rebels, rogues, lepers, poets, explorers, arsonists, swordsmen, activists, criminals, anarchists, racing drivers, reformers, schemers, dreamers, pirates, plague victims, great lovers, pioneers, regicides and songwriters.
The Beatles, Queen Matilda, Jimi Hendrix, The Kray Twins, David Bowie, Karl Marx, General Tom Thumb, Elton John, Tom Jones, Casanova, Claud Duvall, The Rolling Stones, Denis Nilson, The Sex Pistols, Paul Simon, Charlie Chaplin, Johan Zoffany and hundreds of other familiar names, all walked, worked, or wrote in this site. The New Musical Express and the Melody Maker were born here, and it was, for a century, the home of our great songwriters and the British music publishing industry.

About Cranthorpe Millner

Too many beautifully written books are rejected on a regular basis because the submitting author doesn’t have a strong enough author platform. The barriers for authors are getting higher and the publishing industry less discerning and more unscrupulous. It is important to Cranthorpe Millner that we can invite authors to publish with us based on the merit of the manuscript alone.
