Description

A lifelong anglophile, Erin Moore spent holidays in the UK, worked as an editor with British authors and married into an English-American family. So, when she finally moved to London, the last thing she expected was a crash course in culture shock. And the first thing she learned was to take nothing for granted, even the language these two countries supposedly share. In this book, the seemingly superficial variations between British and American vocabulary open the door to a deeper exploration of historical and cultural differences.
