The quintessential Englishwoman Clarissa Dickson Wright, one of the Two Fat Ladies and author of Spilling the Beans, takes us on a personal journey through the country of her birth.

From Cornwall to Cumbria, Norfolk to Northumbria she brings her extraordinary knowledge, huge passion, forthright opinions and inimitable wit to the distinctive history and regional character of every corner of England.

In her cornucopia of local knowledge she reveals, for example, how Boudicca was the original Essex girl, that Lincolnshire has a coriander crop second only in size to India's, and just why a Cornish pasty should never contain carrots.

As much an entertaining narrative as it is a travel companion, Clarissa's England will amuse, enlighten, surprise and delight all those who read it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An appetising, adventurous ramble around the country that's a book for any traveller, or simply an entertaining armchair companion * The Good Book Guide 2013 *
Her engaging county-by-county ramble is seasoned with memories, snatches of poetry and salty opinion... The book's idiosyncratic historical detours are reminiscent of 1066 and All That * i *

“Be Warned!”

I picked up this book expecting it to be a travel book as the sub-title suggests: 'A Gamely Gallop Through the English Counties' ; it is not. What it is is a book packed full of mainly insignificant facts... More
