Raymond Briggs’s is a heartfelt and affectionate tribute to an ordinary couple and an extraordinary generation.

Utterly original, deeply moving and very funny, Ethel & Ernest tells the story of Raymond Briggs’s parents’ marriage, lady’s maid Ethel and milkman Ernest, from their first chance encounter in 1928, through the birth of their son Raymond in 1934, to their deaths, within months of each other, in 1971.

Told in Brigg’s unique strip-cartoon format, Ethel and Ernest live through the defining moments of the twentieth century: the darkness of the Great Depression, the build up to the Second World War, the trials of the war years, the euphoria of VE Day and the emergence of a generation from post war austerity to the cultural enlightenment of the 1960s.
