In this study of East Kent, David Seabrook combines his observations of the towns’ cultural and political landscapes with their literary associations.

A wondrous slice of pyscho-geography from a much-missed author.

Kent is the great in-between county of England. It's got snooty commuter towns, SE London overspills, shifting coastlines and pre-CE monuments. Seabrook covers it all - the horrors of Medway, the blues of the Dartford Delta, the liminal space that is the Isle of Thanet - with Dickens, Wilkie Collins and the frankly terrifying Charles Hawtry by his side.

Original, wise and well-written.

If you want to understand ALL the mechanisms, timelines, characters, and consequences (e.g. enrichment of the devils, impoverishment of homeowners and taxpayers) of the recent financial meltdown, here's the book you want. The detail killed it for me, but I still love the title!
The only book I have ever begun to read and given up on!!
Good book for understanding details of how our current mortgage based financial crisis came about.
