Kirkus UK
An illustrated collection of literary pilgrimages complete with interesting incidental details (Daphne du Maurier, for instance, lives in a house called Menabilly west of Fowey in Devon, better known to readers as 'Manderley'). Several itineraries are included for the energetic devotee to walk, ride, climb and even sail to the spots that they have so often visted in their imaginations. Both well trod and lesser known routes are offered from Wordsworth's lakes to the bleak vasts of the Norfolk coast upon which Jack Higgin's Eagle landed. There are also histories of the houses that have sheltered generations of novelists, such as Lamb House in Rye, home to Henry James followed by E F Benson and Rumer Godden. (Kirkus UK)
