Your final book is The Irish Country House by Peter Somerville Ross. He has written all sorts of things about Irish eccentrics and his adventures in Afghanistan, but this one is basically a social history. It looks at a lot of the amazing houses we have here, and tries to go into a little bit more depth about the families who lived in them. You were obviously inspired by history when you were a child, but for many people it is seen as a very boring subject at school. How would you like it to be taught?
