Follow Leopold Bloom's footsteps around Dublin in James Joyce's Ulysses; hear the music of the Mississippi River steamboats that set the score for Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn; experience the rugged bleakness of Newfoundland in Annie Proulx's The Shipping News, or the soft Neapolitan breezes in Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend. The real-life landscapes of enduring fictional characters and their stories are brought to life in this beautifully illustrated companion to Literary Wonderlands. Period maps, photos, and reproductions of art evoke the sights and sounds of the original works, allowing you to connect with the author's intent in a whole new way.
