Synopsis

The Little Book of Sussex by David Arscott

The Little Book of Sussex is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic or simply strange information which no-one will want to be without. Here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters and literally hundreds of wacky facts (plus some authentically bizarre bits of historic trivia). David Arscott's new book gathers together a myriad of data on Sussex. There are lots of factual chapters but also plenty of frivolous details which will amuse and surprise. With chapters on folklore, history, geography, celebrity Sussexians and much more, this is an ideal book for all those who know and love this quintessentially English county.

About the Author

David Arscott is a former journalist and BBC Radio producer and presenter. He has written more than 40 books on the county. He currently runs the Sussex Book Club and the Society of Sussex Authors, and lives in Lewes.
