The people of Britain have always loved to complain and we do it very well, but the people of Tunbridge Wells turned it into an art. In this new book, the first ever collection of letters from the letters page of the Tunbridge Wells Advertiser, founded in 1847, we are offered an insight into what makes complaining so much fun. Decrying everything from telephones to the excessive singing of Christmas carols, and providing unusual and often touching missives on the major events of the early 20th century, Outraged of Tunbridge Wells encapsulates the charm, compassion, mischief and madness of Middle England.
