Virginia Woolf famously said that to write, a woman must have a room of her own. This book explores the rooms of writers of both genders over the past two centuries, and reflects on the way their surroundings may have influenced their work. The result is an entertaining and richly informative tour that ranges from Dr Johnson’s London house to the Brontë parsonage at Haworth; from Dorothy Parker’s room in New York’s Algonquin Hotel to Dostoyevsky’s St Petersburg apartment.
