    I didn't finish this as its more of a reference book than a beginning to end book. If you are a hardcore fan of any celebrated London authors then this book will be of interest to you.

    This tries to be a travel guide, but is really a series of fun little stories about authors in London, organized geographically. Definitely not a book for everyone, but I really enjoyed, even though it was a slow read.
