Best-selling author of Spilling the Beans, takes her personal journey around the different regions of England. The quintessential Englishwoman Clarissa Dickson Wright takes us on a personal journey through the country of her birth.
From Cornwall to Cumbria, Norfolk to Northumbria she brings her extraordinary knowledge, huge passion, forthright opinions and inimitable wit to the distinctive history and regional character of every corner of England. In her cornucopia of local knowledge she reveals, for example, how Boudicca was the original Essex girl, that Lincolnshire has a coriander crop second only in size to India's, and just why a Cornish pasty should never contain carrots.
As much an entertaining narrative as it is a travel companion, Clarissa's England will amuse, enlighten, surprise and delight all those who listen to it.

Some interesting bits
Most enjoyable account of the different counties of England. I liked how Clarissa spoke about the aspects of each county which I personally did not know. I was educated in many things. However this book is not for those who are anti hunting etc. For me I was able to ignore the references to hunting to be able to take in the rest of the book.
