An Englishman's Commonplace Book

An Englishman's Commonplace Book

£14.50Price

By Roger Hudson. A great hardback loo book, something interesting on every page.

 

The ridiculous mixed in with the elevated has been Roger Hudson’s recipe in compiling this commonplace book from material he’s gathered over the past 40 years. He is a well-read man with a sharp eye, an ironic, very English, sense of humour and a devotion to history. Ranging over the centuries, it contains a rich mix of often arresting facts, vivid descriptions, absurd observations and wise words, all organised under subject headings.
