Timothy Gandy has kept his lifetime’s ambition secret for forty years. Now, suddenly (if tragically) released from the hen-pecked tedium of his ordinary existence, he is unexpectedly free to realize his dreams. He will embark on a Grand Tour of Europe, following in the footsteps of the aristocrats of the eighteenth century. He anticipates high art, culture and pleasant weather. He never expected to encounter new friendships – and possibly even love – along the way. It seems that Mr Gandy has embarked on the journey of a lifetime…
Einer seiner herzerfrischenden Romane. “Mr Gandy’s soul-searching on the death of his wife and journey away from the person he was, to the person he may become, is written with understanding and kindness. I particularly liked the way the characters inter-acted with each other and the effect they had on each other.” (Leserin) (87 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?

An anthology and miscellany of everything an Englishman should know: From Austen to Wordsworth, Jerusalem to the Scout’s Honour, Kings and Queens of England to Land of Hope and Glory, Savile Row tailors to Jermyn St Shirt Makers, Tying a Windsor knot to making a pot of tea, Victoria sponge to fish pie and the rules of cricket to Gilbert and Sullivan operas.
Ein amüsanter Einblick in die englische Geschichte und Kultur. “England, Our England is an anthology of writing, both prose and poetry, celebrating England and Englishness. It’s the type of book that you didn’t think was written anymore, refreshingly old-fashioned and thoroughly decent but charming. Exactly like Alan Titchmarsh himself in fact.” (Leser) (34 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 420 Seiten noch günstig?
