Synopsis

Ten years ago, Angela Kiss arrived in the UK without a word of English. All she brought with her was a small bag, a sense of adventure, a desire to work and a copy of George Mikes' classic 1940s' humour book about the peculiarities of the British, How to be an Alien. Through every dodgy flat share, low-paid waitressing job, awkward date and office mishap, Angela held tight to George's wit and wisdom. With his help she began to understand how to live amongst the English - with their eccentricity, spirit and singing train drivers - and fell in love with a land rich in green spaces, pubs and puddings.

Angela Kiss was born in Hungary, she has lived and worked in London for ten years. She has had three books published in Hungary, one of which was her memoir, "One Way Ticket to London," which has been translated in English and self-published as an ebook. Her latest book "How to be an Alien in England" is a wry, often affectionate view on the English, and how to navigate their national personality. Angela Kiss lives in Italy now, working on her new book.
