Written in the form of a diary that runs from 1926 to 1928, English Hours is a delightful account of a Catalan in the UK during the interwar period. In it, Soldevila writes endearingly of the country and people that he meets while providing us with an invaluable “foreign" look at this critical period in 20th-century Great Britain.

English Hours is not only an insight into British society during this period, but also provides a detailed look at the way two cultures can clash and yet how, ultimately, it is the people and individuals who make up our countries.
