The quintessential Englishwoman Clarissa Dickson Wright, one of the Two Fat Ladies, takes readers on a personal journey through the country of her birth

From Cornwall to Cumbria, Norfolk to Northumbria, Clarissa Dickson Wright brings her extraordinary knowledge, huge passion, forthright opinions, and inimitable wit to the distinctive history and regional character of every corner of England. In her cornucopia of local knowledge she reveals, for example, how Boudicca was the original Essex girl, that Lincolnshire has a coriander crop second only in size to India's, and just why a Cornish pasty should never contain carrots. As much an entertaining narrative as it is a travel companion, this book will amuse, enlighten, surprise and delight all those who read it.

About the Author:

Clarissa Dickson Wright found fame alongside Jennifer Paterson as one half of the much loved TV cooking partnership, Two Fat Ladies. She is the author of the memoir Spilling the Beans.
