Description

In an endeavour to write a book that captures the very essence of Englishness, a young Scot finds himself in 1920s England. To this end, he finds himself in typical English situations and circumstances, including participation in rural sports, international diplomacy, weekend trips to the country, and a village cricket match; all set to the backdrop of a nation going through significant social upheaval. This eloquent and affectionate novel will appeal to those with an interest in English culture and history, and it would make for a charming edition to any collection. Archibald Gordon Macdonell (1895 – 1941) was a Scottish writer, broadcaster, and journalist. Other notable works by this author include: “How Like An Angel” (1934), “The Autobiography of a Cad” (1938), and “Napoleon and his Marshals” (1934). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. This book was first published in 1935.
