Location And The Writer, part 26

Sterne's study at Shandy Hall

In ‘Location and the Writer’, Mary Colson defends Milton Keynes, Martin Day explores Yeovil and Penny Boxall introduces Shandy Hall. Mary Colson defends the honour of much-derided Milton Keynes, and explains why, for her, it’s an inspiring environment. Martin Day introduces the landscape around Yeovil, and explores how childhood vistas underpin our mental landscapes and writing. Penny Boxall introduces us to Shandy Hall, the intriguing home of Laurence Sterne on the North York Moors.
