Available

Description

Following the success of The Book Lover's Bucket List, Caroline Taggart sets off on a tour of Europe to select 100 literary landmarks across the continent to describe and provide practical advice for visiting. Discover the inspirations in Austria for Mary Shelly and in Sweden for Astrid Lindgren; visit Cervantes' statue in Madrid dating back to 1835 and explore the French Riviera through the eyes of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The entries stretch from Homer in the eighth century BCE all the way to modern-day Scandi Noir, Sally Rooney's Dublin and Elena Ferrante's Naples.

Accompanied by colour destination photographs and illustrations, mainly from the British Library Collections, this book is sure to inspire real travel and vicarious vacations alike. Lose yourself in the Venice of Thomas Mann, Edith Wharton and Donna Leon, then retreat by train to the romantic streets of Verona in search of Romeo and Juliet.
