Reviews

Adventures on the High Teas is magnificent: sprawling in its research, illuminating, quirky, saddening, fun, often angry and always intensely readable. * Observer *
Stuart Maconie discovers whether Middle England is a place or a feeling... all described with his usual charm and wit. * Lonely Planet *
Maconie's gift is finding beauty in the most unexpected places and after reading this you'll want to call up Google maps and plan your own journey. It's a wonderfully enriching read. * News of the World *
Taken as a whole, the book amounts to a time capsule of England as it is now; it is, in its quirky offbeat way, a celebration of this country's extra-ordinary capacity to accomodate change while remaining essentially the same. -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday *
It is these juxtapositions of the high and the low, the hip and the furiously unfashionable, or, if you like, the sublime and the ridiculous, that make Maconie such an entertaining tour guide. -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday *
