That's The Way It Crumbles book cover

Matthew Engel’s new book That’s the Way It Crumbles arrived in bookshops on June 8 2017 to warm reviews from leading London newspapers and magazines.

Crumbles is the culmination of seven years research into the fascinating 400-year history of American words travelling to Britain. To the point where many British teenagers (Hi guys!) are basically speaking American (Don’t even go there!)

And politicians, broadcasters, journalists – even judges – are just as guilty, making British English as vulnerable as the vanishing tribal languages of the Amazon.

Does this matter? I think so.
