The au­thor of this book is a cu­rate in the dio­cese of Liver­pool and of­fers a de­light­ful in­sight into the work­ings of the Angli­can Church over the years – or, least­ways, the eccentricities of some of the clergy. Wil­liam Buck­land, Dean of West­min­ster for ex­am­ple, was very fond of mouse on toast. Dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, one naval chap­lain used to be wrapped in sack­ing and pulled through the bar­rels of his ship’s guns to clean them, like a pipe cleaner. He went on to be­come the Bishop of Nor­wich. Oneworld £12.99
