You may recall that I decided to keep track of all the London place names that come up in Anita Brookner's fiction. Her novels are full of London. Not in an overly conspicuous way, but it leaves you no doubt that Brookner is a creature of the city.
Having now finished re-reading six of Brookner's 24 novels (and working on number seven at the moment), my Gazetteer of Brookner's London is starting to take shape. I can't wait to see the list when I've finished re-reading all 24. Part of me wants to do this with every book I read that takes place in London but that would be just short of madness.
At some point I will invest the time and/or money into having a map made. But for now it is a list. I know there are London geeks out there who will enjoy looking at it even if you haven't read Brookner.
