A Fete Worse Than Death

When Iain Aitch decided to spend the summer travelling round England in search of the English at leisure, he found himself encountering the living embodiments of the phrase 'summer madness' at every turn.

From planespotters, shinkickers and the very British weekend Luftwaffe to crop-circle makers and the Cornish villagers who float a giant pasty across a river each year. A Fete Worse Than Death is a hilarious insight into what it is to be English in the twenty-first century.
