One thought on “My tweets

  1. Before opening any of the cuts, the first titles to come to mind: Nineteen Eighty-Four, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice/Sense and Sensibility/Emma (etc), Animal Farm, Jane Eyre, Howards End, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Jude the Obscure, The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin, the real world bits of the Narnia series, and Winnie the Pooh.

    Your rephrased question probably rules out Perrin (David Nobbs captures a particular kind of Englishness like no one else writing now, though), and while I obviously do think of the Orwells as being set in England I take your point.
