Touring the places that captured the imaginations of Britain’s most enduring and popular literary figures, A Reader’s Guide to Writers’ Britain is both a splendid bedside companion and an indispensable travel guide. Every location is brought gloriously to life with anecdote and incident: Wordsworth’s Lakes, Dickens’ London, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Edinburgh, Dylan Thomas’ Wales. There are also places that inspired children’s authors, from A.A. Milne to Beatrix Potter, as well as present–day favorites, like Dick Francis and Ellis Peters. This newly updated guide features 600 contemporary and historical pictures, regional maps, and a generous section on museums and houses open to the public.About the Author:
