St Margarets

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-10-15-05St Margarets is a suburban settlement nine miles outside London in the county of Middlesex, England.

Here Anthony Burgess composed his Essay on Censorship in 1989, having decided to take a stand against intolerance and hypocrisy amid the Rushdie Satanic Verses affair.

The Burgess house is at 8 King’s Road, within a very short walk of the railway station (Burgess never learned to drive a car).
