Literary London

One of my Christmas presents is a great little book my mum gave me: 221B Baker Street to the Old Curiosity Shop; A Guide to London’s Literary Landmarks

It is full of all the literary connections to parts of London, pubs Dickens characters drank in and poetry back to medieval times.

I love how London still has it’s places from the past to reveal. I could live there a lifetime and still not know it all.

Village life seems trapping compared to my view of London as infinite and ever changing.

I think of the opening to ‘The Crimson Petal and the White; “Keep Your wits about you. This city is vast and intricate.”

This book is a little comfort in sinking back in to the places I miss being at my feet.
