Sure, there are many great places to see in London, but I always return to Charing Cross road. That area of the city has everything I want. No matter if I’m in the mood for adventure, fantasy, investigation, a food fetish or planning my next excursion, they have it. There are at least a dozen specialised book shops. And then there’s Foyles, the granddaddy of independent bookstores in London.
Friends who live in the big black smoke ask where should we meet, and when I tell them Foyles, they say, “What? Again?” Of course. “Haven’t you already got all the books they sell?” They keep making more, you see. And now I’ve contributed to this inexhaustible supply, by writing my own book. Wouldn’t you know it, Foyles has that, too!
Did that Californian expat ever finally get his French License after 10 years? Wander down a half-flight of stairs to the travel writing section and find out at the bookstore!
