Publisher's description: Everyone has a treasured place to read, study, work, and dream -- but there's something special about an English room. In this handsome volume filled with perceptive photographs, some of England's most renowned figures share their favorite spaces and their personal musings about Englishness and English rooms. Benedict Cumberbatch reveals his favorite place to read a script; Jeanette Winterson describes why she adores the Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris; P. D. James discusses the inspiration for her novel The Black Tower; and fashion designer Paul Smith contemplates the joys of his book-lined study. Gilbert & George invite you into their Queen Anne house, while Alan Bennett explains his rumpled existence in Primrose Hill. Derry Moore's discerning eye captures the essence of the English room, whether in a country cottage, large estate, ancient chapel, or artist studio at home or abroad. All those with a passion for English culture, society, design, and fashion will take pleasure in this unique view into the private lives of some of England's most public figures.
