Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Family vacations-in their many forms-have always been a source of great entertainment. In this book, edited by Brown (wife of Britain's chancellor of the exchequer and director of the charity PiggyBanKids) with Gil McNeil and Hugo Tagholm, 21 English writers celebrate their "water-bound nation" with adventure stories about childhood beach holidays; daydreams of exotic, faraway locales and the coastlines and landscapes surrounding the landmass they call home. Two of the many pleasures of reading this book are discovering authors whose work is largely unfamiliar to American readers, e.g., Andrew Motion, Alex Dick Read, Gervase Pinn, and Russell Celyn Jones, and becoming acquainted with a different side of familiar authors like Alexander McCall Smith and Ruth Rendell. Wry, witty, and often filled with wonderful details, these stories are a pleasant reading experience for the Anglophiles and armchair travelers among us. Recommended as interest warrants.
