    If there is one thing the English love, it is a true eccentric, and David Long has scoured the history books for the very best of them. Arranged in chapters on builders, inventors, travellers and troglodytes, hoarders, faddists, foodies and men of war, this compendium of strangeness includes James Whittaker Wright and his underwater ballroom, Francis Galton and his project for mapping where Britain's ugliest people live, and John Stewart, who walked home from India in the 1770s - and 1780s.
