News between home in England and an eighteen-year-old in New York before the days of email and cheap transatlantic phone calls (1973-1974). Atlantic Airmail reveals the nineteen-seventies from both sides of the pond and the generational divide: a coalition government and an impeached president. It is a contemporary insight to personal and social changes in a pre-globalised world.

    We take quick and easy communications for granted but this book takes us back to written letters taking over a week to travel across the Atlantic. It shows a sometimes fractious family relationship but reveals what is important in their lives at the time and, of most interest, is set in the changing times of the early seventies in the USA and England. These details are reported as a matter of fact and are surprisingly fresh in telling us what we haven't learned from the past. The latter part is an account of a journey East coast to West and back by Greyhound bus with observations of human behaviour and personal reflections. It represents an authentic account, sometimes veiled in mysterious references, of people with a genuine interest in their world. Highly recommended for Anglo-philes and anyone interested in the human narrative.
