A Financial Times ‘Book to Read in 2023’
Essex. A county both famous and infamous: the stuff of tabloid headlines and reality television, consumer culture and right-wing politicians.
England’s dark id.
But beyond the sensationalist headlines lies a strange and secret place with a rich history: smugglers and private islands, artists and radicals, myths and legends. It’s where the Peasants’ Revolt began and the Empire Windrush docked. And – from political movements like Brexit to cultural events like TOWIE – where Essex leads, the rest of us often follow.
Deeply researched and thoroughly engaging, The Invention of Essex shows that there is more to this fabled English county than meets the eye.
