Description
A must-have for every fan of literature, Booked inspires readers to follow in their favorite characters footsteps by visiting the real-life locations portrayed in beloved novels including the Monroeville, Alabama courthouse in To Kill a Mockingbird, Chatsworth House, the inspiration for Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, and the Kyoto Bridge from Memoirs of a Geisha. The full-color photographs throughout reveal the settings readers have imagined again and again in their favorite books. Organized by regions all around the world, author Richard Kreitner explains the importance of each literary landmark including the connection to the author and novel, cultural significance, historical information, and little-known facts about the location. He also includes travel advice like addresses and must-see spots. Booked features special sections on cities that inspired countless literary works like a round of locations in Brooklyn from Betty Smith's iconic A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to Jonathan Lethem's Motherless Brooklyn and a look at the New Orleans of Tennessee Williams and Anne Rice. Locations include: Central Park, NYC (The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger), Forks, Washington (Twilight, Stephanie Meyer), Prince Edward Island, Canada (Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery), Kingston Penitentiary, Ontario (Alias Grace, Margaret Atwood), Holcomb, Kansas (In Cold Blood, Truman Capote), London, England (White Teeth, Zadie Smith), Paris, France (Hunchback of Notre Dame, Victor Hugo), Segovia, Spain, (For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway), and Kyoto, Japan (Memoirs of a Geisha, Arthur Golden).
