Description

What makes an Anglophile? What makes someone love a country not their own? Adventures in Anglotopia is a journey to answer this question, framed through a childhood exposed to British culture and then nearly twenty years of travel in Britain. It’s an exploration of why one American man loves Britain so much but also why Britain is such a wonderful place, worthy of loving unconditionally.

The narrative arc of the book answers this question by covering interesting topics related to Britain such as visiting for the first time, culture, stately home, tea, history, British TV, literature, specific places, and much more. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic, all building to the end where Jonathan reveals his ‘Great British Dream.’

Come on a journey that will take you the length and breadth of Britain and its rich history.
