Utterly original, deeply moving and very funny, Ethel & Ernest is the story of Raymond Brigg’s parents’ marriage, from their first chance encounter to their deaths told in Brigg’s unique strip-cartoon format. Nothing is invented, nothing embroidered – this is the reality of two decent, ordinary lives of two people who, as Briggs tells the story, become representative of us all. The book is also social history; we see the dark days of the Second World War, the birth of the Welfare State, the advent of television and all the changes which were so exhilarating and bewildering for Ethel and Ernest. A marvellous, life-enhancing book for all ages.

Very good condition book in good condition dust jacket. Some wear to dust jacket edges. Now in protective sleeve.
