9780007177769: The Long Weekend: A Surprised American Mother in England

Funny, moving account of three months in London which changed three lives forever, following the premature arrival of baby Jack, by wife of comedian and film star Denis. Affectionate take on the Brits: why a consultant goes from Mr to Dr to Mr; the filthy taste of Lucozade and weird but ultimately -- to Ann's mind -- successful workings of the NHS. An incredible series of events kicks off during what was supposed to have been a brief, weekend-long trip to England for Denis to appear on Live at Paramount City. At the time, Denis was an unknown comic still struggling for his big break, and Ann was just five-and-a-half months pregnant. Their weekend getaway took an unexpected turn the morning after their arrival, when Ann's waters broke as they strolled along Oxford Street. The premature start to Jack's entry into the world saw Ann end up in University College Hospital while Denis used the following months to make it in Britain as a stand up star, whilst partying with Jo Strummer and Mick Jagger in his spare time. It would be five months before the family would return to the United States.

Review:

'Ann Leary's account of her young family's triumph over adversity is fresh, heartfelt and hilarious. It's like spending quality alone time with your smartest, funniest friend and learning there's even more there to admire. I loved this book.' Michael J. Fox.
