Summary
Who doesn't love a good museum? They have long been sources of inspiration to the most creative among us. This book brings together over twenty of the world's greatest writers to give their own personal tours of the museums that have awed, haunted and inspired them. The result is a fascinating look into the world of literature and museums. Explore the Villa San Michele on the sunny island of Capri with Ali Smith, as she delves into the life of its eccentric founder. Step off the busy roads of Paris with Jacqueline Wilson, as she dives into the uncanny world of the Musee de la Poupee. Discover an Egyptian temple in the heart of Copenhagen with Alan Hollinghurst, and the mystery of Sibelius's silence in Helsinki with Julian Barnes. Travelling all over the world, from Oxford to New York, Zagreb to Kabul, and exploring a range of museums, from the ABBA Museum to the Museum of Broken Relationships, the essays in this collection will leave you inspired, longing to revisit your favourite treasure palace or itching to find a new one to explore
