20,000 Streets Under the Sky is a trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels by Patrick Hamilton. The three books are The Midnight Bell (1929), The Siege of Pleasure (1932) and The Plains of Cement (1934). They focus on three of the people who populate The Midnight Bell pub in London; the stories interconnect.The first book in particular contains autobiographical elements—Hamilton worked in London pubs before becoming a successful writer, was infatuated with a prostitute at that time, and eventually died of liver failure caused by alcoholism. The books are also notable for their portrayal of working class London in the inter-war period.The trilogy was published in paperback by Vintage in 2004 (ISBN 0-09-947916-8). Source: Wikipedia (en)
