England, Their England (Pan 70th Anniversary)
A G Macdonell
Price  350.00
A. G. Macdonell's affectionately satirical comedy of 1920s English society.

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.
