One Fine Day: Ian Marchant

When Ian Marchant, author of books on music, railways and pubs, started to dig around his family history he found that his ancestor, Thomas Marchant, had kept a diary from 1714 to 1728.

Using these extraordinary records, One Fine Day – A Journey Through English Time, reveals how pre-industrialised England functioned, a time when in many ways people were not separate from the system but part of it.

In conversation with Jonathan Davidson, Ian will share his journey to writing a book whose beauty of execution is expertly matched by its wit and wisdom.
