Novel Destinations: Literary Landmarks From Jane Austen's Bath to Ernest Hemingway's Key West - Shannon Mckenna Schmidt, Joni Rendon, Matthew Pearl

One of the highlights of my trip to Paris was visiting Victor Hugo’s house. It was beautiful and mysterious and decorated in a style that even in his time must have been unusual. For those of us who are fascinated not with lives of movies stars but authors, now there is a guidebook to their homes and haunts. Novel Destinations takes you to Zora Neale Hurston’s Eatonville and to 221B Baker Street, the home of the fictional Sherlock Holmes. The book is full of interesting places like the watering holes frequented by Hemingway to Willa Cather’s childhood home in Nebraska. There are literary festivals, cafes and hotels where the literati dined and slept and the cemeteries where they are buried. It’s great fun for the armchair traveler and pilgrims on Jane Austen’s Bath Walking Tour.
