Have your say

Bookmark in Spalding has selected More Very British Problems by Rob Temple as its book of the week.

Rob Temple, award-winning features editor, is here to explain the symptoms of very British problems abroad and of course to make fun of you (in the nicest possible way).

But, do you suffer from very British problems abroad? If you carry emergency teabags in your money belt, quietly tut at badly formed ‘queues’, cleverly avoid blisters by wearing socks with your sandals... then you may have a serious problem for which there is no known vaccination other than to laugh along with Rob Temple’s hilarious book.

In this sequel to the original and quite-funny-if-you-like-that-sort-of-thing ‘Very British Problems’ book, now a hit TV show, Rob is taking us outside of our comfort zone. This is an affectionate look into the cultural quirks and strange obsessions that make us all so very British – especially when we leave the country.

Whether you’re in Magaluf or the Maldives, indulging in après ski or Aperol, no one is immune from the raging bug that is ‘More Very British Problems’.

The book retails for £7.99 but there is a 20 per cent discount voucher in the Spalding Guardian of October 27.
