How to be an Alien
2 journalers for this copy...
"How to be an Alien" is a classic of British humour and by its 32nd impression in 1966 had sold over 300,000 copies. It pokes gentle fun at the English and their relationship with foreigners, "alien" meaning in this context any non-English person. The book is characterised by much humour, affection and a total lack of rancour or bitterness. Mikes, an immigrant from Hungary, demonstrated not only his knowledge of English society but an insight into the English language.
Edit Februay 12th 2022:
A quick read. However for me the funniest part was the title of the book, which I find hilarious. So with this book I participate to the BC Helmet Reading Challenge 2022 (37. A book with a cover or title that makes you feel good).
