Care to wander round British city in novel (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'novel' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'care to wander round british city' is the wordplay.
'to wander' indicates an anagram.
'round' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').
'city' becomes 'ec' (the City of London postcode).
'care' is an anagram of 'reca'.
'reca' placed around 'bec' is 'REBECCA'.
'in' is the link.
(Other definitions for rebecca that I've seen before include "she loved Ivanhoe", "riotous girl", "Biblical wife of Isaac and mother of Jacob and Esau", "Daphne du Maurier's antiheroine", "1938 novel, starting: 'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again'", "Sunnybrook Farm girl", "One of the four matriarchs of the Jewish people (anglicised)", "The first Mrs de Winter (du Maurier)", "Isaac's wife" and "Book".)
