I remember being in a Pub with her when she told me to ask the burly guy at the counter for a "Spotted dick." It took a lot of coaxing until I reluctantly went up to him. My first thought was that I may not be walking right later. I'm still here and the Spotted dick* he handed me was a delicious dessert.
Since I'm trying to clear my library clutter this year, I went through my stacks to find works of fiction for this challenge that were first published in Great Britain. I found four books which will qualify me for "Gordon Bennett" standing.
The Book Stops Here by Ian Sansom
Oscar Wilde and a Death of No Importance by Gyles Brandreth
The Lambs of London by Peter Ackroyd
Hello, Darling, Are You Working? by Rupert Everett
Thanks to Book Chick City for hosting this challenge.
*Spotted dick is a steamed suet pudding with currants and served with custard.
