Literary London: A Recommended Reading List


Anyone dreaming of a trip to London? Traveling there this year? Packing your bags with your feet as you read this?

If so: first, stop multi-tasking. In the words of Ron Swanson, “Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.”

Second, check out my recommended reading list for the extraordinary city of London, published today over at LitroNY. Each of the books I chose offers a totally different perspective on the British capital, highlighting various aspects of a metropolis that has proved itself impossible to summarize. Whether you want a closeup of Victorian London, Dickens-style (Oliver Twist) or a contemporary romp that will keep you in stitches for the eight-hour transatlantic crossing (Bridget Jones’s Diary), I’ve got you covered.

Happy traveling, if that’s on your itinerary—and, of course, happy reading!
