The quintessential Englishwoman Clarissa Dickson Wright, one of the Two Fat Ladies and author of Spilling the Beans, Rifling Through my Drawers and many cookbooks, 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.
If you are unable to make it, we can always reserve a signed, or dedicated copy for you. Call us on 01488 683480. A signed copy would make an excellent gift (and you can always read it yourself first!).
