Description

From the Globe at Bankside to the Wimpole Street home of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, London is, and always has been, crammed with literary life. Playwrights, novelists, diarists, poets and essayists throughout the centuries have roamed its streets, met in its cafes and retaurants and strolled in its parks and gardens. They have been inspired by its monuments, churches, law courts and theatres and have created fictional Londoners as diverse as Mr Pickwick, Sherlock Holmes, Bertie Wooster, Mrs Dalloway and Winston Smith, whose fortunes are played out against a London backdrop. This updated edition of The Penguin Literary Guide to London is a must for all book lovers and readers.

Author Biography

Ed Glinert was born in Dalston, east London. He is the author of The London Compendium, East End Chronicles and Literary London and leads a variety of walking tours around London. His fascination with people and place, the bizarre and the arcane, coupled with his forensic gift for digging out obscure stories, is perfectly suited to this uniquely interesting place.
