Thank-you Stephen Fry
Huge thanks to Stephen Fry for his great endorsement of my book, Underneath The Archers. Here’s what he wrote about it:
‘Any fan of The Archers will down this book in grateful glugs, like Eddie Grundy necking cider. As hilarious, charming, eccentric, informative, addictive and delightful as the show itself. But there’s a truly fascinating social and agricultural history behind Graham Harvey’s masterly story-telling too. The changes that have come to Ambridge are changes that have transformed our world. It turns out that this little village makes a wonderful lens through which to look at the whole story of Britain’.
How could any author fail to be delighted with comments like that? As you’d expect, Stephen Fry has got to the very nub of the book. When I wrote it I naturally hoped it would interest and amuse Archers fans. But I also wanted to look a little wider; to say something about what the national institution that is The Archers reveals about us, the British, and who we think we are. Particularly in relation to our countryside.
