Pulitzer prize winning author Michael Dirda of the Washington Post has this to say about the book:
"Half memoir, half travel book, A Yank Back To England never stints the
reader: Here is England seen entire, from inside out, from bottom to top, as Denis Lipman returns from America to his working-class family home in blighted Dagenham. From there he, his young American wife, and his cockney Mum and Dad embark on a series of funny, touching, madcap and even surreal adventures as they visit celebrated landmarks and holiday spots of England—as well as a good many pubs. The result is an absolutely wonderful book, not only about going home again but also about love and family and tradition and the passage of the years."
--Michael Dirda (Pulitzer Prize-winning literary critic and author of the memoir An Open Book)
And this from the film and stage actor, Michael York...
A perceptive, engaging and informative take on contemporary England as seen through the eyes of a fellow expatriate who writes with humor and affection. The cast of characters has an almost Dickensian vivacity." - Michael York
