The World of Charles Dickens

London possesses a literary heritage which is unique and in large part unrivalled in any city in the world.

In this book, literary London is presented through its authors and literature: William Shakespeare, Andrea Levy, G.A. Henty, Geoffrey Chaucer, P.L. Travers, Samuel Pepys, Sherlock Holmes, Charles Dickens, Una Marson, Joe Orton, John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Phillis Wheatley, Abdulrazak Gurnah, Katherine Mansfield, Harry Potter and Samuel Selvon to name just a very few. The text takes the reader on a series of walks, each of which is original and unique, the result of twenty years’ exploration of this wonderful city. I think I have walked everywhere! Detailed maps have been specially commissioned.

The text is accompanied by over 80 original photographs taken by me.

It has received some very positive reviews. The ‘Library Journal’ in the USA, which is the main publication for reviewing and recommending books for inclusion in American libraries says: “Meant for travelers and general readers, this book belongs to adventurers of all sorts, whether on the road or in their minds”.
