“The English American is a funny, charming and poignant book — the kind that you can’t resist reading in a single day.” —Chicago Sun Times
Springing from her internationally acclaimed one woman show, in her hilarious, poignant first novel, Anglo-American writer/comedian Alison Larkin draws further from her experiences as an adopted English woman who finds her birth parents — and a new homeland — in the United States and weaves them into a compulsively readable work of fiction.
Alison wins the prestigious Earphones Award from Audiofile for the audiobook of The English American
“Larkin moves delightfully between the various British and American accents … This audio experience is like watching a great romantic comedy. Have the tissues ready at the end—the romance is that good!” —AudioFile May 2012
“I loved The English American and I think anyone
who gets it is going to feel the same way”
—Alan Chartock, WAMC National Public Radio, 12/7/2013
