WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE: NEW E-READER ESSAY, “ENGLAND MY ENGLAND: ANGLOPHILIA EXPLAINED”

“Are Anglophiles born or made? Or cultured in a medium of suet and sentimentality, romanticism and Marmite?”

asgsg

My first longform essay for e-reader, out from Thought Catalog publications this Monday, March 11; available from Amazon (Kindle) and iBookstore; Barnes & Noble (Nook) to follow.

Teaser:

Downton Abbey has brought out the Anglophile in American fans of the hit TV series. But Anglophilia has a long history in America. Why are some native-born residents of our Shining City Upon a Hill, where All Men Are Created Equal, seduced by the fluting tones of manor-born privilege? At last, Anglophilia explained—in American, thank you.
