From Herb Lester | Designed by Paul Rogers
This whistle-stop tour of literary London includes sites as varied as the block of flats where George Orwell and H.G. Wells fell out over curry and plum cake, Julian Barnes at the National Gallery, J.G. Ballard in Docklands, Alan Bennett’s harsh but accurate summary of Camden Town's distinctive aroma, and a brief attempt to maintain the pace of James Boswell's enthusiastic womanising.
Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, Herb Lester just tell you how to enjoy it. Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. Each guide is printed in England on 100% recycled paper.
