Simon Winder has already delighted us with Germania and Danubia, books of Germany and Hapsburg Europe which are much broader than histories, encompassing cuisine, folklore, architecture and landscape and brought together with great humour and enthusiasm.
Lotharingia illuminates the history of the lost kingdoms that lie between France and Germany in a swathe from the North Sea coast to the Alps. Hilariously weaving history, travelogue and memoir together, this is a magnificent final part to his journey into European history.
