Hardback
by Liesemer, Dirk

Dickens's London

Paperback
by Clark, Peter

A near-photographic memory made his contact with the city indelible from a very young age and it remained his constant focus. Virginia Woolf maintained that, 'we remodel our psychological geography when we read Dickens,' as he produces 'characters who exist not in detail, not accurately or exactly, but ...

Kafka's Prague

Paperback
by Wagenbach, Klaus
Nearly 100 years after Franz Kafka's death, his works continue to intrigue and haunt us. Even for those who are only fleetingly acquainted with his unfinished novels, or his stories, diaries, and letters, `Kafkaesque' has become a byword for the menacing, unfathomable absurdity of modern existence and bureaucracy. Yet for all the universal significance of his fiction, Kafka's writing remains inextricably bo...
