A Home on the Rock

To tell the history of the Cliffs is to tell the history of our country, one that stretches back for centuries and reminds us that we are a nation of immigrants who are brought together by nothing more than shared land and the history that goes with it. We can and should build an open, inclusive, generous and hospitable patriotism, and we can lay the foundation stone for it on the White Cliffs of Dover.

New pamphlet published by the National Trust, the result of my writer-in-residency at the White Cliffs of Dover. Download here. (Extract appeared in The Times, 14 October)
