Book excerpt: Enchanting ... while writing a series of richly comic recollections which had me laughing out loud every few pages, he has now written a book with much more underlying seriousness and much more to say about the human condition than any Booker prizewinner could achieve' A. N. Wilson, Country Life 'Intensely comical ... contains some of the funniest scenes I have seen in print this year' Jeremy Paxman, Observer 'Although on route to meet plenty of people more famous ... none of them can begin to match the charm of the book's bumbling narratior in his Dickensian progression from weedy daydreamer, to failed solicitor, country squire, genealogist, obituarist and lurker at stage doors. This man is an institution, one of the great English eccentrics of our time' James Delingpole, Literary Review

Download or read book The Anglo Files: A Field Guide to the British (First Edition) written by Sarah Lyall and published by W. W. Norton & Company. This book was released on 2009-08-24 with total page 303 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Should be handed out . . . in the immigration line at Heathrow.” —Malcolm Gladwell Sarah Lyall moved to London in the mid-1990s and soon became known for amusing and sharp dispatches on her adopted country. Confronted by the eccentricities of these island people (the English husband who never turned on the lights, the legislators who behaved like drunken frat boys, the hedgehog lovers), she set about trying to figure out the British. Part anthropological field study and part memoir, The Anglo Files has already received great acclaim and recognition for the astuteness, humor, and sensitivity with which the author wields her pen.
Download or read book Selling Ancestry written by Stéphane Jettot and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2023-08-08 with total page 399 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Often cited but rarely studied in their own right, family directories allow a reconsideration of how ancestry and genealogy became an object of widespread commercialization across the eighteenth century. These directories replaced the expensive, locally-produced, early modern artefacts (tombs, windowpanes, illuminated pedigrees), and began to reach a wide audience of readers in the British Isles and the colonies. From the first Peerage in 1709 to the guidebooks of Debrett's and Burke's in the 1830s, Stéphane Jettot offers an insight into the cumulative process leading to the creation of these hybrid products — a combination of court almanacs, county histories, and town directories. Employed by contemporaries as reference tools to navigate through a dynamic and changing society, they could be used as a means to probe contemporary attitudes towards social status and political events. Published by the most prominent London booksellers who shared their copyrights among themselves, they relied on the considerable involvement of thousands of families in the counties. In their correspondence with publishers, many new and old elites desired to insert their own narrative into a general history of Britain by dispatching documents, quotations, and anecdotes. Based on a unique source-base, this book provides a systematic review of these directories, their production, and sale, but also their potential role in shaping the character of social change. Jettot demonstrates the wider ramifications of genealogy and its structural ability to reinvent itself, associate amateurs and antiquarians alike, and thrive on the wavering lines between facts and fiction, offering an exciting and unique insight into the social history of eighteenth-century Britain.
