Reader Identification: Other Response

For those who don't read her LiveJournal, shewhomust responds to my post on Reader Identification with her own post I know a place.... She has some interesting thoughts of her own:


Which leads me to the opposite conclusion to mabfan: when I get a buzz from recognising in a book a location that I know personally, what I feel is not satisfaction that the author's reliability is confirmed. My pleasure is not that the book is being anchored in reality, but that I am being drawn into the fiction. If I can walk down Baker Street, I'm one step closer to meeting Sherlock Holmes (well, OK, there's a slight problem of chronology here: pick your own example).
