He was a polymath and polyglot who chain smoked for England and wrote more words than Dickens, Wells and Trollope combined.

Manchester was his city, even though once he had enough money to move out of Moss Side he migrated to Monaco. As the great man may himself have said: “the future’s clockwork; the future’s orange.”

Ed Glinert, Penguin author and editor of Penguin Classics’ Sherlock Holmes stories, leads this walking tour around the great man’s Manchester haunts, finishing at the Anthony Burgess Centre.
