This is probably the funniest, most entertaining book I've ever read about English culture.
Moreover, her writing is hilarious - she has a droll, tongue-in-cheek, utterly English sense of humor that had me laughing through every chapter.
It's a book on modern English cultural anthropology, but as dry as that sounds it was well written and highly entertaining.
Well written, funny and enlightening. While watching British television after reading Fox's examination I recognize so many of the quirks she describes.Published 2 months ago by Elizabeth Faison
