Park and Ride - Adventures in Suburbia
Park and Ride - Adventures in Suburbia
Sawyer, Miranda
This is the Britain of motorways and heritage centres, of campaigning housewives and executive housing estates, of boy racers and Essex girls, of Cheshire wives and Scottish golfers. Readers are taken for an evening at a prestigious hotel night-club, a day in Britain's "most average town," a few hours with Staffordshire's jet-set, and a lovely Sunday drive to see the new B&Q on the bypass. This is not the Britain that is green and pleasant, urban and dangerous, historic and scenic - this is the rest of it, the vast swathes of in-betweeny land, the multiplexed, motorwayed, mind-your-manners, Great British Experience...
