Blog Tour: Unputdownable Books


Ingrid has shared the inspiration behind When the World was Flat (and we were in love) with the blog Unputdownable Books as part of her Around the World in 80 Days Blog Tour.

Excerpt from Unputdownable Books:

Aldous Huxley took inspiration from Shakespeare when writing Brave New World. And, in a case of art imitating art, Conan Doyle modeled Sherlock Holmes on C.

Auguste Dupin, a fictional detective created by Edgar Allan Poe. Stephanie Meyer has said that Eclipse was inspired by Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (even though she apparently dislikes the book!). And James Joyce famously channeled Homer in Ulysses (which I have tried to read about ten times).

It seems that creativity breeds creativity (and intertextuality!).

There were a number of inspirations for When the World was Flat (and we were in love), including a variety of films, music and locations. A major muse, however, was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
