Best-selling author of Spilling the Beans, takes her personal journey around the different regions of England. The quintessential Englishwoman Clarissa Dickson Wright takes us on a personal journey through the country of her birth.
From Cornwall to Cumbria, Norfolk to Northumbria she 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, Clarissa's England will amuse, enlighten, surprise and delight all those who listen to it.

My New "Go to Sleep" Book.. (a compliment)
I use Audio books to overcome insomnia. In order to be effective, the book must have a subject that's sufficiently interesting to keep me from my own busy thoughts, but also mundane enough to not stimulate those thoughts through the night. Clarissa's voice is melodic, her descriptions are compelling, and I'm glad to learn more about the places my ancestors came from back.. in.... zzzzzzzz.
The Martian also works for insomnia.
Hunting stags from horses, netting eels for three thousand pounds, and how AA made it to the UK... but they're pretty much all like that.
Got any more like this one Clarissa?
