Publisher's Summary

Eighteen years ago, Joe Bennett left England for a holiday. Now he’s come back. But how is the England of his memory different from the England of the motorway? Identikit high streets, New Labour, chicken tikka - things aren’t what they used to be. But the longer Joe travels, the more he wonders whether 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. Criss-crossing the country with varying degrees of enthusiasm, Joe Bennett establishes himself as one of our most engaging travel writers.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This Audio Book contains some explicit scenes/language.

    Story
    "I'm not grumbling...this was brilliant!"

    Really enjoyable romp through the UK, loved his rich descriptions of the people, places and observations...very clever humour and well narrated, captured the right tone and feelings of certain individuals...must get the printed version.

    "Not worth the money"

    Dull, boring and needlessly vulgar. I was really looking forward to something clever and entertaining - but I very disappointed.
