Publisher Comments:

On ten strolls through London, Rüdiger Görner explores the literary landscape of the capital. He meets William Shakespeare, Heinrich Heine, and William Hogarth south of the river; finds Virginia Woolf and Lady Ottoline Morell in Bloomsbury; discovers William Blake and Anthony Trollope in Westminster; happens on the Carlyles in Chelsea; comes across John Keats in beautiful Hampstead; and searches for Francis Bacon and Hanif Kureishi in the London suburbs. Following this literary rambler means discovering familiar places and their histories anew by seeing them through the eyes of those who walked the streets before him.
