Publisher's Summary

These two much-loved series featured the late Peter Tinniswood's legendary creations Uncle Mort and Carter Brandon. As the pair tour Britain, Uncle Mort's recollections make for some hilarious moments. In Uncle Mort's North Country, having been granted a week's holiday, Carter Brandon, with his uncle Mort for company, takes a series of day trips around the north. From day one the week is quite eventful, from a burning barn and a death in a pub where they stop for a drink, to a trip to the seaside where events are equally interesting and amusing.In Uncle Mort's South Country, these famous sons of the north find a fruitful new patch of Tinniswood country in which to air their views. Soho and Hampton Court, southern hotels and southern pubs, southern beer and southern food, that caustic one-nation philosopher, Uncle Mort, has to stomach them all. Also included in this release is an interview with Peter Tinniswood, who died in 2003.

The brilliant Peter Tinniswoode at his best.

Having heard this on the radio I had to own it. Almost a perfect performance in terms of writing and delivery.
As a northerner I recognise the surliness and grumpiness but Tinniswoode takes to a whole new level. You will guffaw, I promise.

A northern delight

Peter Tinniswood has an innate ability of bringing to life seemingly two-dimentional characters and nowhere is this more apparent than in this delightful audio book.. Uncle Mort being the antithesis of all things old-world and Northern whereas Carter Brandon is part desciple/ part cheerleader; the two travel the length and breadth of our beautiful nation finding fault, meeting the local excentrics and bemoaning the passing of a bygone age, can't wait the read 'Uncle Morts Celtic Fringe'
