About the Author

About the author

Author:  Long, David

Author Description:  Well received by reviewers and readers alike, David Long has been a writer since leaving a first-class university with a second-class degree in the 1980s. He is fascinated by those strange, semi-hidden corners of England most of us cease to notice because we walk by them so often. Whilst a columnist for the Sunday People he created a popular weekly cartoon strip which appeared in the Times, and continues to write for a wide diversity of newspapers and magazines both in Britain and abroad. Many of his most popular and best-reviewed books reflect his longstanding interest in the less well-known aspects of Britain, its architecture and eccentric inhabitants - subjects, he says, which simply never run dry. He has previously written Bizarre England and Lost Britain for Michael O'Mara Books.
