"Sometimes the setting of a novel is as important as the story—where would Dickens be without London, or Edith Wharton without New York? Who can read Jamaica Inn and not want to visit Bodmin Moor, or enjoy Alexander McCall Smith's The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency without wondering whether perhaps Botswana should be on your bucket list?
"Whether you have already decided on a destination and want to get a feel for the place and its history, or you are just looking for ideas for your next getaway, Around the World in 80 Novels is full of inspirational reads that will fire your imagination and have you reaching for your suitcase."
