Blighty by Steve Lowe
Book DescriptionBritishness: what does it really mean? Is it all a big con? Having skewered modern British life in the bestselling Is It Just Me or is Everything Shit?, Steve Lowe and Alan MacArthur set out to uncover the deep dark truth about Britain - its history, its myths and its people. Over the course of a year they watch Dorset Morris men dancing on a chalk-giant's thirty-foot-long erection, endure the Last Night of the Proms and search for a couple of pissed dragons under a hill in Wales. They ask Prince William what it means to be British, witness Scotland rising again (a bit), encounter terrifying Europhobe ladies in Surrey, and lose the will to live in Gibraltar. They also meet a lot of druids. Hilarious, timely and provocative, Blighty offers a brilliant, alternative vision of Britain - the island in the Atlantic that some people call Britain.
