Description

From the author of Mr Tibbits’s Catholic School and Terms & Conditions, British Summer Time Begins is a delightful, nostalgic and joyous celebration of summer holidays, told in Ysenda Maxtone Graham’s signature hilarious style.

It paints a revealing portrait of twentieth-century Britain in summertime: how families functioned, what houses and gardens and streets were like, what journeys were like, and what people did all day in their free time. It explores their expectations, hopes, fears and habits, the rules or lack of rules under which they lived, their happiness and sadness, their sense of being treasured or neglected.
