VERY BRITISH PROBLEMS: Volume III


VERY BRITISH PROBLEMS: Volume III

ROB TEMPLE    Book Number: 84562    Product format: Hardback

2017 up-to-date edition of our very British quirks and obsessions as collected on the @soverybritish Twitter account, Facebook page and Instagram feed which have a combined following of almost three million sufferers. All are locked together in an endless muddle of baffling behaviour and the best are distilled in one shiny new tome of VBPs. Alongside the ten stages of British anger, the very British 'How To' guide to everything, a handy e-mail translation guide, a detailed history of the British relationship with tea, and some boozy British cocktails, here is Britain in sickness and in health, discussing the weather, exercise, commuting, the cinema, politics, dieting, pets, eating out, moving house, festivals, sickness and health, buying a car, shopping, hitting the town, job interviews, Sundays, Christmas and more. A brilliant A-Z starts with Apologising (the national sport, practiced all day every day, forever. Sorry.), Chips (eating of), Hay Fever (more commonly known as 'bloody hay fever'), Pimm's, (a Brit's way of getting their five-a-day during the week of summer) to Wheelie Bins (obsession with) and even Zebras. We are guided through the maze of idiosyncrasies, loveable foibles and outright eccentricities that define this sceptred isle. Cup of tea anybody? 272pp, a few big lines of text per page and humorous illus throughout.
