Victor Canning is best known as a thriller writer who wrote more than 60 books.
'Whilst much necessarily possesses a nostalgic appeal for contemporary readers, Canning does capture the timeless appeal of many English destinations... all receiving the same wry humour and perceptive insight.' The Good Book Guide 'Although the articles were written less than 80 years ago, it's striking just how much England has changed. In some respects the 30s appear very harsh, with great poverty. In other ways, that era had much to recommend ... What is amusing is Victor's forthright comments on aspects of 30s England, many of which would cause a newspaper editor to consult a lawyer before daring to publish... This charming book reminds us of a tougher but gentler era before even more horrors afflicted our green and pleasant land!' Sixtyplusurfers "... a series of pen portraits of this green and pleasant land, first commissioned by the Daily Mail in the Thirties." Choice
