Will Donaldson

Root Around Britain
  • Root Around Britain

  • Conveniently arranged in alphabetical order, from Abstractions (you'll find them on the Continent, of course') to Weather, Root Around Britain tells the story of a quest. A quest for the essence of Englishness; a quest for a new television series which Mr Root can sell to the fat man in Birmingham; a quest for a peerage and the right way to pay for it ('old money' or 'new money'?); and, finally, a quest for the means to humiliate a nosy neighbour. What could be more English than that?

William Donaldson is the éminence grise behind Root Around Britain, as he was behind The Henry Root Letters, The Further Letters of Henry Root, Henry Root's World of Knowledge and Root into Europe.
