"Who are we? What do we want? They seemed like good questions to ask, in the company of some of our greatest writers, given these restless times." Setting out to understand Britain through books but also the deep literary associations of its towns and landscapes, Peter Fiennes begins in Dorset, shaped by Enid Blyton's childhood visions, and ends with Charles Dickens on the train that took him to his final resting place in Westminster Abbey. Retracing the steps of J.B. Priestley and Beryl Bainbridge, Samuel Johnson and James Boswell, Fiennes shares his own thoughtful and witty reflections, and his engaging book is peppered with quotations.
