England, Their England, Paperback / softback Book

England, Their England Paperback / softback

Part of the Pan 70th Anniversary series

Description

A special edition of England, Their England by A. G. Macdonell reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary. Banished from his native Scotland by a curious clause in his father's will, Donald Cameron moves to London and decides to conduct a study of the English people; a strange race who, he is told, have built an entire national identity around a reverence for team spirit and the memory of Lord Nelson . . . What follows is one of the funniest social satires ever written.

Whether Cameron is haplessly participating in a village cricket match, being shown around an exclusive golf course, or trying to watch a rugby match in the thick London fog, his affectionately bemused portrait of his new countrymen is a joy to read. Reminiscent of the gentle wit of P. G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome, England, Their England offers a delightful portrait of Britain in the 1920s.
