'Curious' is perhaps not the first word you would use to label Essex. But 'curiouser and curiouser' it becomes when you dig below the surface. Meet larger-than-life characters, including the one-time fattest man in England whose waist was wider than the height of an average man. And talking of big, discover the origin of Humpty Dumpty. This book features surprising and bizarre tales from Essex.
