David Bennun had lived in Africa his whole life. At the age of 18, he came to Britain, the mother country—the country he had read about and seen in films. Would it be the noble, educated, admirable United Kingdom he had been led to expect? He was in for a very big shock indeed. Readers follow his life as a student, his brushes with Bohemia, his troubles renting and buying property, his discovery of British food, and his horrors at entering the world of work. From DIY to architecture, sport to alcohol, transport to music and entertainment, this book brilliantly and with ruthless wit deconstructs all these subjects, many of them so dear to the British heart.
