A-Z: Fifth Best London Book

If the results of the Time Out 'best loved London books' poll have taught us anything it's that you have to be really specific when asking the public to vote for things.

As the Guardian A-Z Street Atlas took fifth place in the poll, beating the likes of Virginia Woolf, Evelyn Waugh, Joseph Conrad, Zadie Smith and Peter Ackroyd.

Time Out's books editor John O'Connell is quoted as saying that that his readers may have "taken the instructions too literally".

Of course, London Fields took first place, while Our Mutual Friend came in second.
