In Confessions of an Opium Eater, we find a poignant tale of love and loss in London. Thomas de Quincey, teenage, penniless, and losing his health as a prelude to his later drug addiction, is befriended by a young girl working as a prostitute. Every day they look out for each other on the streets of Soho.
He journeys to Eton to borrow money against his future inheritance. They are full of their plans for the future for when he returns, and they vow to meet each other at their favourite haunt on Oxford Street.
