Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Don't Need The Sunshine is a humorous journey around Britain's seaside holiday destinations. John Osborne has never been a fan of going abroad somewhere hot on holiday. He blames the bigging up of "abroad" on his parents, or at least their generation. In the 60s and 70s they started going on holiday abroad and came back with a taste for the exoticism of a bottle of vin de pays and a pain au chocolat. Who wanted a stick of rock and a donkey ride in the rain when Provence beckoned? Things were simpler in the olden days—those postwar years when Winston Churchill urged the nation to go on holiday. In need of an escape, but without the funds or inclination for two weeks in the sun, John makes the curious decision to spend a year tracing his family holiday history. If a day trip to Cleethorpes was good enough for his granny, then why should it not be good enough for him? And if his bank manager doesn't stop him, he might even splash out on a week in the Isle of Wight.
