John Josteins is a lawyer of British and Spanish citizenship. He was born on 1 February 1965 in Equatorial Guinea, where his father from Mallorca, Spain was an Air Force officer. At that time, it was still a Spanish territory in the Gulf of Guinea in Africa before it became independent on 12 October 1968.

He earned two degrees in Law and Political Science from the University of Complutense in Madrid and speaks Spanish, English and French (as well as Fang, a dialect from his mother’s side spoken in Central Africa by the Bantou sub-ethnic group). He is very proud of the mixed European and African heritage that he carries with him in mind, body and soul, and that makes him feel like a citizen of the world, free of borders. As a living example of fraternity between the two continents, it has given him a unique perspective of the world and of life.

He moved to London many years ago where he has lived and worked ever since, eventually becoming a British citizen. He is very fond of the United Kingdom, and in particular London, to him, one of the most beautiful, dynamic and multicultural cities on Earth. He feels at home there in the city that has welcomed him with open arms. It has captivated his soul and imagination such that he feels a special bond with the city, like a friendship with unconditional trust. If a city could have a conscience and be aware of the world around it, the way it has shaped people for centuries, London would be very proud indeed to know the achievements and successes it has made over the centuries that will continue to attract and inspire many generations to come, as it has inspired the author to write this book.

    It made me feel nostalgic for London. The book captures the special place that Big Ben represents for Londoners and why the people of Oxon wanted to steal it.
