Kingdom by the Sea: A Journey Around the Coast of Great Britain
Kingdom by the Sea: A Journey Around the Coast of Great Britain | Paul Theroux
4 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
It was 1982, the summer of the Falkland Islands War, and the birth of the royal heir, Prince William--and the ideal time, Theroux found, to surprise the British into talking about themselves. The result is a candid, funny, perceptive, and opinionated travelogue of his journey and his findings.

Day 8 #TravelTuesday

I read this years ago, & thought it was fascinating. Most Brit travel writers are huge Anglophiles, so it was interesting to read something a bit more cynical.
