'Lovers of England and the English will find themselves reading this long farewelll with constant exclamations of agreement and flashes of new understanding...The most powerful and touching parts of it are snatches of Scruton's own autobiography.' Peter Hitchens, Express on Sunday * Blurb from reviewer *
