Huge book to get one’s teeth into. What’s a bit scary is what’s written about in the later chapters is weirdly familiar and it’s strange to see it written about as history.
Best bit about the book? Excellent photo caption facing page 407, and brilliant subtitles such as ‘The Killer Cows of Old England’, ‘The Tartan Pizza’ and ‘The Stairs Were on Fire’. Mr Marr is wasted on TV.
