Fifteen years ago, Joe Bennett left England for a holiday—now it's time to come back.
After fifteen years of being a professional Englishman on the otherside of the world, Joe Bennett thought he would come back to refresh his memory. But how has his England changed? Identikit High Streets, imported cheeriness, chicken tikka poker machine pubs—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 in England.
Criss–crossing the country by varying means of transport and with varying degrees of enthusiasm, Joe Bennett delivers a humorous and poignant portrait of his homeland. Part love letter, part eulogy, part diatribe, it is travel writing not to be missed.
