Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Exploring family history is an urge that has gripped the nation, and it has gripped Jeremy Hardy too. In My Family and Other Strangers he sets out on the road and on the world wide web to find out all he can about the Hardy clan. e aims to prove or more likely disprove his grandmother Becky s dubious claims that they are descended from Sir Christopher Wren and that Jeremy s great grandfather was personal bodyguard and confident to the King. Wild stories apart, Jeremy hopes to find family traits that go beyond a big nose and IBS. Whatever he finds, how will he know how much in the blood and how much is coincidence? Might he discover a comedy gene? But perhaps, more than this, he is looking hoping to build up a picture of those relatives who he knew too fleetingly as a small child, and the people who filled their world. Negotiate the living and the dead, the familiar and the distant, My Family and Other Strangers is a fascinating, often comic and deeply moving look at the world of family ancestry.
