This is an auction for CORONATION by Paul Gallico. reviews:

"It's the 2nd June 1953 and Will Clagg is a proud man who has bought his family prime viewing tickets for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II - forgoing the annual family holiday at the sea in exchange for the expense of the trip to London. However, once they get to London things don't go quite as planned. This is the story of an ordinary family who go to London for a once-in-a-life-time event, but the event they get is not the one that they expect. The writing is simple and easy to read. This is a story that is quickly read but leaves you with a good feeling at the end. If you are after a quick read that is not padded out or pretentious and has a realistic feeling for the event it revolves around then this is a good book to pick up."

"A working class family decide to give up their annual holiday, and instead travel to London to see the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The book is the story of the events of the day, and the reactions of the various members of the family to those events. It is beautifully written, and is my favourite Paul Gallico story."
