The guide to British Culture

British culture is rich and diverse but it’s also unwieldy. Morrissey, black pudding, Paradise Lost, Tracey Emin, ‘To be or not to be’… So many different genres and characters – from cinema to food, literature to music – all of it fascinating but hard to fully grasp, even for the seasoned Brit.

Speak the Culture: Britain gathers all the different strands together for the first time, presenting them in an amusing and thorough guide.

Unsure which Victorian novelists to read first? Or which British band really started punk? Or why John Constable was so crucial to the development of modern art? It’s all in the book, a shortcut to understanding British culture that delivers the essential insider ‘info’.

Perfect for the cultural tourist, the language student, the new resident or even the longtime Brit eager to learn more about their cultural heritage.
