ENGLAND MY ENGLAND A Treasury Of All Things English GERRY HANSON 2012
‘In England understatement is the key to communication. Which is why this book isn’t at all bad and as a guide to England you could probably do worse’ Ian Hislop
Enormously entertaining and eclectic, England My England is a glorious celebration of England’s heritage and a veritable feast of prose, poetry and song. In addition to the usual suspects (the best-loved poems and half-remembered verses), Gerry Hanson has unearthed a treasure trove of poets and writers across the centuries, but he doesn’t end there. We are also treated to a wealth of speeches and articles, to the historical to the more tongue-in-cheek as well as satirical from such different writers and personalities as Alan Coren, Jeremy Paxman, John Mortimer and Ian Hislop. Heart-warming, joyous and serendipitous in equal measure, England My England is a wonderful collection of all things English.
