While New York Paris and Dublin are also vividly portrayed in fiction it is London Quindlen argues that has always been the star both because of the primacy of English literature and the specificity of city descriptions She bases her view of the city on her own detailed literary map tracking the footsteps of her favorite characters the places where Evelyn Waugh s bright young things danced until dawn or where Lydia Bennett eloped with the dastardly Wickham .
