Synopses & Reviews
Eighteen years ago, Joe Bennett left England. Now, he's back. But how is the England of his memory different from the England of the motorway? Identikit High Streets, New Labour, poker-machine pubs - things aren't what they used to be. But Joe begins to wonder if things were ever what they used to be. Even a century ago, H.V Morton, the nation's most celebrated eulogiser, was In Search of England... Joe Bennett delivers a dazzlingly funny and poignant portrait of his homeland, which is part love letter, part eulogy and part diatribe.
