Part occult folklore, part psychogeography, but always haunting evocative writing -- these are the features of Andy Sharp's legendary 'English Heretic' project, in which England is seen and experienced as heritage, but heretical heritage. Sharp's narratives take us throug a land of of black plaques, witches, occultists, horror films, music, old pop culture. This book is a collection of the best, most wonderful essays. Dive in, and you'll never see England the same way again, and not just the stone circles and the haunted mansions, but even places like Menabilly car park. Recommended.
