Location And The Writer, part 5

Compass and map

In Location And The Writer, we visit a struggling seaside town, a childhood corner of Ireland, and London’s winding Thames. Anna Reynolds takes us to Weston-super-Mare, which she finds both grim and perversely inspiring. Brian Keaney revisits childhood summer holidays in his ancestral home of Straduffy in Ireland. Penny Hancock serenades the Thames, a river that often turns up in her books.
