A sightseer's guide to the lives of those people who populate the bars, restaurants and clubs of Soho. Rubbernecks are urban individuals noted for their vanity, arrogance, affluence, youth (real or imagined), good looks (genuine or manufactured), promiscuity, neurosis, aggression, sociability, obsession with fame, obsession with clothes and suppleness of spine. The book takes a look at the late 1980s, an era - according to this book - already swept aside by Green mania, the "us" generation and high interest rates. The book also contains a glossary - a list of rubberneck people, places and phrases set down for posterity.
