A Lovereading Travel Book of the Month.

This is a brilliant book to refer to whether you're going off travelling to a particular country in the world or just wishing you were and are in fact more of an armchair traveller. Reading on Location is a country-by-country guide to the regions and cities made famous by both well-known and cult books. Brilliant for learning more about a potential destination, about following in the footsteps of a favourite character from a novel and getting to know a destination through the eyes of a celebrated author. Reading a story or piece about a city can introduce a stranger to the heart of that location, just as visiting the area where a favourite novel is set can bring the words to life. Whether it's visiting a restaurant featured in American Psycho or experiencing an event such as the running with the bulls in Pamplona through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway, Reading on Location will allow readers and travellers to get the most from their trips.

Synopsis

Reading on Location : A Guide to Great Books Set in the World's Top Destinations by Luisa Moncada and Scala Quin

From the quintessential English city of Bath, featured in Jane Austen's Persuasion to the South India of Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things and the Amazon of Mario Vargas Llosa's La Casa Verde, this book is aimed at those who want to learn more about a potential destination, follow in the footsteps of a favourite character from a novel and get to know a destination through the eyes of a celebrated author.
