Noel and Ellen's Inspiration,
This review is from: 1066 And All That: The History Book to End All History Books (Methuen Humour) (Hardcover)
Noel happily made reference to "1066 and All That" on the fly-leaf of his own title. Ellen had never heard of it, and wanted to know why anyone-else would have, either. "It's a classic of the British hunour genre", said Noel. "It's the genre's 'Top Book'! Any British humour writer, with leanings towards history would give Harold II's eye-teeth to be compared with it!" And then it turns out to be its 75th anniversary, and everyone wants to parody it (2066 and All That, 1966 and All That, etc) and be compared with it. Too spooky! Don't you think?
