Treasured Island: A book lover’s tour of Britain by Frank Barrett

9780749578138 AA Publishing

 

Inspired by the discovery of his childhood copy of Treasure Island, The Mail on Sunday's Frank Barrett embarks on a literary quest around Britain, from Eliot's East Coker to Austen's Bath, Winnie-the-Pooh's Hartfield to Dracula's Whitby. Armed with a lifetime of reading and his National Trust membership, Frank is on a personal odyssey through the Britain that has inspired so many writers to capture it in lines or verse, the homes they lived in, the museums that remember them. There will be rain, there will be truculent tour guides, there will be satnav misdemeanours (there may even be tuberculosis), but Frank will carry on regardless.

Where? To the lighthouse...
