Description
A lifelong fan of Dickens, Eliot, Woolf, and other classic British writers, novelist and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Anna Quindlen came to know London through books. When she finally got the opportunity to travel there, she went reluctantly, fearing the real city would replace or distort her own image of it. In this memoir, Quindlen delves into both literary and contemporary London, unavoidably comparing the two as she visits Sherlock Holmes's Baker Street, a restaurant favored by Shakespeare, and the haunts of Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group.

"A consistently enlightening and enjoyable writer, Quindlen presents a smart, bookish, wry, and stimulating portrait of the most literary of cities."—Booklist
