In this travel journal, award-winning writer Paul Gogarty travels 3,000 miles in a motor home, exploring intimate coastal communities and ruminating on the future of the English coast. After an unsettling benediction at Dover's Eastern Docks he travels to Derek Jarman's Dungeness; to rakish Brighton and Madame Rosina's Bournemouth; the mudflats and Arabian sands of the northwest, where he joins a roomful of comedian George Formby impersonators in Blackpool; the now infamous Morcambe Bay where 21 immigrant workers lost their lives; Billy Butlin's Skegness; and a parachuting vicar. The journey comes full circle in the secret creeks of East Anglia. "The Coast Road" is a warm-hearted tribute to England's coastline written by a romantic spirit who beautifully captures both the idiosyncrasies of the nation and the euphoria of the open road.
