London to Loweswater: A Journey Through England at the End of the Twentieth Century download epub
Davies looks at Heritage and Lottery England. It’s a pleasant amble from London to Loweswater in the Lake District, via a handful of interesting (some unsurprising, some less so) towns and cities en route.
Davies looks at Heritage and Lottery England. He writes from an equally privileged, establishment perspective and cheerfully admits his connections. Indeed the names he drops throughout the book read as a who's who of the London elite. Yet what breathes life into his voyage are the interviews with people he meets on his travels -the seemingly ordinary souls who prove to be much more fascinating and revealing than the guests at Tony Blair's party which he attends at the start of his journey.

Literature of the 20th century refers to world literature produced during the 20th century (1901 to 2000). In terms of the Euro-American tradition, the main periods are captured in the bipartite division, Modernist literature and Postmodern literature, flowering from roughly 1900 to 1940 and 1960 to 1990 respectively, divided, as a rule of thumb, by World War II. The somewhat malleable term of contemporary literature is usually applied with a post-1960 cutoff point.
