Description

A fascinating guide to the best literary landmarks in London that takes the reader into publishing houses and along paths of inspiration, revealing the stories behind the stories. * One of the world's greatest literary cities, London has streets full of stories and buildings steeped in history. * The biggest and most beloved names in English literature have all been here, and you can still see or visit their stomping grounds and favourite places. * Follow Oscar Wilde from the literary salons to Clapham Junction; roam with Julian McClaren Ross through Fitzrovia, dropping in for a pint or three with Dylan Thomas at the Bricklayers' Arms; muse darkly over the Thames with Spencer, Eliot and Conrad; and watch aghast as Lord Byron terrorizes his publisher on Albemarle Street...Moving through time and genre, from Spencer and Shakespeare to Amis and Barnes, from tragedy and romance to chick-lit and science fiction, Literary London is a snappy and informative guide, showing just why - as another famous local writer put it - he who is tired of London is tired of life.
