The author retains the style of J.B. Priestly while retracing the steps of his 1933 "English Journey" to capture the changes that half a century has brought to their native land

In 1983 Beryl Bainbridge and crew embarked on a BBC-sponsored tour from Southampton up through Manchester, then on to Milton Keynes, mirroring the route taken by J.B. Priestley in his 1933 classic, English Journey. Bainbridge pegs the British people just right, and notes the small details, such as the hundreds of starlings "perched in rows like black door-knobs" on the roof and gables of Bradford's Town Hall. She takes England's pulse, compares it to the England her family knew and to Priestley's reports of 50 years before, providing depth and poignancy to her sharp, amusing perceptions.
