The Full English: Stuart Maconie
Published in 1933, author J B Priestley’s book, English Journey, charted his journey across a changing England, a country that he loved and yet did not understand. Ninety years later, broadcaster and author Stuart Maconie has made the same journey through England using Priestley’s itinerary as a guide. The Full English is an insightful and entertaining book that interrogates the state of England today, a ‘sustained lovers’ quarrel’ with a country that is at once home and yet – at times – unrecognisable.
