Stuff Brits Like: A Guide to What's Great about Great Britain (Paperback)
If you're looking for the best biscuit to dunk in your tea, the ideal temperature at which to serve real ale or the perfect pasty for your trip to the seaside, you either A) Have been desperately seeking a book exactly like this one or,
B) Have secretly become British without realizing it. If you chose A, congratulations, you are an Anglophile And, if you chose B, don't panic. With the help of Stuff Brits Like, you will soon discover the joy of these and many more delightful British peculiarities and can develop an upper lip as stiff as any you've seen on Downton Abbey. British native Fraser McAlpine set out to do for his countrymen what Stuff Parisians Like did for their neighbors across the channel--offering a guide to their particular tastes and eccentricities with all the cheeky wit you might expect from the people who gave you Noel Coward and Eddie Izzard. You may know to say football instead of soccer and crisps instead of chips. You may even know why taking the piss is more fun and less unsanitary than it sounds. But with Stuff Brits Like, you'll be ready for the next pub quiz in no time.
About the Author
Fraser McAlpine is the lead writer for Anglophenia, BBC America's blog for American Anglophiles, and consequently spends a good deal of his working life arguing about the finer points of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Downton Abbey and anything with Tom Hiddleston in it. He lives in Cornwall, which is the Florida of the British Isles, except it's far wetter and there's no Disneyworld.
