The History of England

 Having written enthralling biographies of London and of its great river, the Thames, acclaimed author Peter Ackroyd now turns to England itself in a landmark six-part history. Ackroyd is a cornerstone of Britain’s literary landscape, with acclaimed novels, retellings of Chaucer and Mallory and other major works of non-fiction. This series, beginning with Stonehenge and ending with the twentieth century, is something he's been waiting to write all his life. It is history with the emphasis on story, a real pleasure to read, full of riveting details.  A renowned author’s most ambitious project in a long and successful career that has been anything but unambitious.
