“What sustains the book is May's obvious enthusiasm and warmth for his birthplace and his new appreciation of its quirks and history.”
Independent review of The Joy of Essex

“If Ernest Hemingway had come from suburban Essex and dined in Ken's Cafe he may well have come up with this book. Very funny, a real egg and chips romp.”
