About this title

Synopsis:

Inspired by the discovery of his childhood copy of Treasure Island, Frank Barrett embarks on a literary quest around Britain, from Eliot's East Coker to Austen's Bath, Winnie-the-Pooh's Hartfield to Dracula's Whitby. Armed with a lifetime of reading and his National Trust membership, Frank is on a personal odyssey through the Britain that has inspired so many writers to capture it in lines or verse, the homes that they lived in, the museums that remember them. There will be rain, there will be truculent tour guides, there will be satnav misdemeanors, (there may even be tuberculosis), but Frank will carry on regardless. Where? To the lighthouse.
