Books set in location

Books set in location are evocative. They remind us of trips we have made. They prepare us for trips we are about to undertake. They can help the armchair traveller absorb the atmosphere of a faraway land. We feature novels whose story lines are set in over a thousand cities and countries around the world.

Whether you want to research your next holiday, relive a trip to your favourite city or make an armchair escape to an exotic country, TripFiction lets you see a location through an author’s eyes.
