There'll Always be an England Social Stereotypes from the Daily Telegraph by Victoria Mather, Sue Macartney-Snape

A brilliant new collection of stereotypes from the long running Daily Telegraph series. In this hilariously mordant, yet touchingly sympathetic, book, no aspect of English life is spared. Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape return in sparkling form to immortalize those very English characters and situations we come across every day. For all of us, there'll always be an England, and, we're afraid, this is it...Stereotypes include: The Post Office Queue The Cheryl Cole Wannabe The Rebellious Congregation The Pub Quiz Team The Comical Dog Show The Hateful Hosts The Milkman The Village Organist The Pet Funeral Praise for previous collections: 'Mather and Macartney-Snape are not so much observers, more collectors, pinning their victims like butterflies in a display cabinet ...Very enjoyable.' - Michael Parkinson 'With consummate skill the authors have once again skewered our national smugness' - Nicky Haslam 'A dazzling combination' - Jilly Cooper


Hilariously mordant yet touchingly sympathetic. People's Friend Hilarious. Country Life Delightful. Good Book Guide

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.
