Britain's counties are rich in associations with writers past and present. In 10 region-by-region chapters, “Literary Britain and Ireland” features sites connected with every branch of literature, including sacred writings, humorous stories, children's novels, poetry, plays and all types of fiction. The book is a treasure trove of information, revealing the birthplaces, homes, schools, workplaces and inspirations of writers from Robert Louis Stephenson and William Wordsworth to Roddy Doyle and J.K. Rowling. Jane Struthers provides a lively commentary on each region, from Northern Scotland through England and Wales and across the Irish Sea - the land is littered with literary geniuses. Each chapter is accompanied by a full-colour map and Chris Coe's fabulous photography.
