Tour de force of random humour,
This review is from: R2D2 Lives in Preston: The Best of BBC 6 Music's Toast the Nation (Paperback)
This book was born from the "toast the nation" feature on Shaun W Keveney's breakfast show. The point of the feature is that any home town can be celebrated, often for the most obscure and random reason. This yields a treasure of random and funny facts for towns across the UK, with the addition of Shaun's own gentle humour.
The whole is a creation of a sort of crowd wisdom. Nothing pretends to be comprehensive or 100% authoritative. Rather it is a celebration of the variety and oddness of our nation.
A great gift for any uncle/ brother/ son/ daughter/ auntie etc, etc.
