5.0 out of 5 stars A Reader's Guide to Writers' London
As both a reader, and a Londoner, this is a wonderful guide to everything literary in the city. The book is split into different districts - Central London, North London, East London, South London and West London. Beautifully bound, with glossy paper and lots of illustrations/photographs, there is lots to explore and discover. You can find out where authors worked,...

3.0 out of 5 stars contains an error
On page 128, it states Daniel Defoe is pictured in Cornhill pillory. Clearly he is pictured in a pillory in front of Temple Bar. Defoe stayed one day in Cornhill pillory, the next in Cheapside and the final day at Temple Bar.

This review is from: A Reader's Guide to Writers' London (Hardcover)
As both a reader, and a Londoner, this is a wonderful guide to everything literary in the city. The book is split into different districts - Central London, North London, East London, South London and West London. Beautifully bound, with glossy paper and lots of illustrations/photographs, there is lots to explore and discover. You can find out where authors worked, wrote, what inspired them and even where they are buried. Having lived in both East and North London, and worked in the City, I thought I knew many of the literary landmarks of the Capital - but there were many places of interest I was unaware of. However, the book is set out so you can 'walk' the areas mentioned - for example, "Blackfriars to the Tower of London" which discusses the sites of various theatres, places/scenes that appear in "Little Dorrit" and the office of Samuel Pepys. There are wonderful digressions and much to read and learn, which will mean you never look at streets you may have rushed down in quite the same way before. This is a little large, as a volume, to take with you when out and about (a kindle version would be brilliant), but it is a lovely gift book for anyone interested in literature who may live in, or be visiting, London. There is also a companion volume, "Writer's Britain."
