Literary London

Literary London (EPUB ebook)

By Millar, Eloise
By Jordison, Sam

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 s...teeped 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 salons to Clapham Junction; roam with Julian McClaren Ross through Fitzrovia, dropping in for a pint of three with Dylan Thomas at the Bricklayers' Arms; muse darkly over the Thames with Spencer, Eliot and Conrad; and watch aghast as Lorn Byron terrorizes his publisher on Albermarle 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 tired of London is tired of life.
