I'm reading a book by Joanne Harris called Gentlemen and Players. It's fiction based at a private boys school in England. There's a couple things I can't figure out and maybe you can clarify them for me.
"His house is a tiny two-up, two-down midterrace
..." What is that? Two rooms up and two down? Or two bedrooms up and two down? And what's a midterrace?
What is a chocolate digestive
? A cookie?
And what is a custard tart
? Is it like pie crust with custard in it?
I know these are goofy questions but I'm curious.
