Many places in the British Isles are inextricably linked with writers who have made us see them through their eyes: Hardy's Dorset, Dickens's Kent marshes, Stevenson's Highlands. In this remarkable book, 30 of the liveliest contemporary authors, including Whitbread winner Ali Smith and novelist Niall Griffiths, consider the towns and rural landscapes they share with their literary predecessors such as Virginia Woolf (the Sussex Downs) TS Eliot (the City of London), Dylan Thomas (Lougharne) and Alan Garner (Cheshire).
