9780007365500: We?re British, Innit: An Irreverent A to Z of All Things British

Forget the Government's Citizenship Test – this is the real measure of Britishness.

With a wealth of brand-new material that will bring a smile of recognition to even the stiffest of upper lips, Iain Aitch brings us even more explorations of innate Britishness. Continuing in the snappy A-Z format, Iain Aitch brings us all things uniquely British, whether it's our love of fish and chips, our high regard for James Bond or the red telephone box, everything you've ever regarded as being inimitably British is contained within these pages.

Test your knowledge of Britain and what it means to be British by answering the multiple choice questions at the end of the book. What kind of peas are used to make mushy peas? What were the last words of Admiral Lord Nelson? What exactly is Readers' Wives? Were you paying attention?

With more style than Jarvis Cocker's moves and more pomp than Elgar's masterpiece, this is a celebration of all that is truly glorious about good old Blighty. A book for the entire British population - Northerner, Southerner, and even tourist and immigrant alike - this is the perfect read for someone seeking a truly British experience.

Review:

“This ‘Irreverent A-Z of All Things British’ is a humourously unflinching but affectionate look at the true state of the nation.” Nude Magazine

“Iain Aitch takes stock of the sights and sounds that truly make us who we are.” The Independent

About the Author:

Iain Aitch is a London-based writer who has written for The Observer, The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, The Financial Times, The London Evening Standard, Salon, The Idler and Bizarre. He is also London editor of San Francisco’s Dwell magazine. Iain’s articles for The Guardian were chosen as the best of the year in 2005 and 2006 by readers of the newspaper. He writes about a mixture of arts, travel and eccentricity, regularly looking at slices of British life. Always brimming with ideas, he is the inventor of World Phone in Sick Day and also initiated the annual London Santacon: a gathering of Santas intent on festive mayhem. Both of these events have been the subject of documentaries by Channel 4 and BBC Radio 4 respectively.
