Minimum Donation €12.50

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. 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
