Writers relationships with their surroundings are seldom straightforward. While some, like Jane Austen and Thomas Mann, wrote novels set where they were staying (Lyme Regis and Venice respectively), Victor Hugo penned Les Miserables in an attic in Guernsey and Noel Coward wrote that most English of plays, Blithe Spirit, in the Welsh holiday village of Portmeirion. Award-winning BBC drama producer Adrian Mourby follows his literary heroes around the world, exploring 50 places where great works of literature first saw the light of day. At each destination - from the Brontes Yorkshire Moors to the New York of Truman Capote, Christopher Isherwood s Berlin to the now-legendary Edinburgh cafe where J.K. Rowling plotted Harry Potter s first adventures - Mourby explains what the writer was doing there and describes what the visitor can find today of that great moment in literature. Rooms of One s Own takes you on a literary journey from the British Isles to Paris, Berlin, New Orleans, New York and Bangkok and unearths the real-life places behind our best-loved works of literature.
