Summary : Clarissa's England: A Gamely Gallop Through the English Counties (Unabridged)

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.
