1966 and All ThatBook - 2005
75 years on from the first publication of 1066 and All That, Craig Brown takes over where Sellars and Yeatman left off. With all the zest and exuberance of the original, 1966 and All That takes us on a half-remembered journey of imperial decline, loss of moustaches, The Sewers Crisis, angry young men, slightly cheesed-off young ladies, the onset of rock 'n' roll, the doomed romance of Princess Margaret and Pete Townshend, the decade of the Ironing Lady - and an unstoppable increase in the quantity of Royals.
1966 AND ALL THAT - all the modern history you can't remember, narrated in a way you can't begin to understand.
There'll be an exam too, so please pay attention.
'A WORK OF COMIC BRILLIANCE. DISCONCERTINGLY LIKE MY G.C.S.E. COURSEWORK.' Ben Schott
'EASILY THE FUNNIEST COMIC WRITER IN BRITAIN TODAY, CRAIG BROWN HAS PRECISELY CAUGHT THE GENIUS OF SELLAR & YEATMAN AND BROUGHT THE STORY UP TO THE PRESENT. THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD OF THE RESULT.' Andrew Roberts
