The fully wonderful A.N. Devers interviewed about Writers Houses at the Big Read Blog. A snippet, in response to where she still wants to visit: "I’d say all of them, but it makes me sound like some kind of cheap writers’ houses floozy. It’s really a tie between The Bronte Parsonage and Virginia Woolf’s Monk House. Woolf visited The Bronte Parsonage and wrote an incredible essay about it called “Haworth, November 1904.” Rounding out the tipsy-top of my wish list: Dostoevsky’s house in Saint Petersburg and the Japanese horror and mystery writer Edogawa Rampo’s house in Tokyo. Oh, and that guy Shakespeare. Here’s a fun fact: P. T. Barnum actually tried to purchase Shakespeare’s birthplace and move it to America."
