    London is unrivalled as a source of inspiration for writers from Geoffrey Chaucer to J.K. Rowling. From 221B Baker Street to the Old Curiosity Shop will explore the capital both from the viewpoint of the many writers who have used it as a stage for their plots and their characters; and of the readers whose imagination is fired by the knowledge that they are standing outside the home of David Copperfield on the Strand or Count Dracula's residence in Piccadilly. All of London's clubs, pubs, restaurants, houses and streets that have been made famous in the works of the likes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming, Charles Dickens and Evelyn Waugh are featured in this exhaustively researched volume. Listed geographically, each entry provides a description of the location, its place in literature and its inspiration. From Fleming's legendary Blades Club in Mayfair, that made appearances in both Moonraker and Goldfinger, to Waugh's bohemian Shepheard's Hotel from Vile Bodies, that was based on the celebrated Cavendish Hotel, to the haunts of Sherlock Holmes and Bertie Wooster, From 221B Baker Street to the Old Curiosity Shop will appeal to all lovers of classic fiction set in the great city.
