Surrey is a lovely county in which to live-and write. Down the ages, writers of all kinds have sung its praises, and used it as a setting for everything from romantic entanglements to alien invasions. Jacqueline Banerjee is fascinated by the appearance of familiar scenes in their work, and by the whole impact of place on the literary imagination. She encourages us to look again (or perhaps for the first time) at these authors and the beautiful local places that inspired them, and to see them both with fresh eyes. Each chapter has helpful suggestions about how to do our own literary detective work, whether by "reading on," or by exploring the Surrey countryside for ourselves.
