Product description

Review

'A must for every British Christmas stocking.' John Carey; 'Unputdownable... the man writes like a dream - informed, fresh, racy prose.' Guardian

Book Description

Backroom Boys by Francis Spufford is a rapturous history of British engineering, of which the Daily Telegraph said, 'I don't want to pretend that Backroom Boys is perfect; it's just as near to it as makes no difference.'
