Book Summary:

Everyone talks about 'Middle England'. Sometimes they mean something bad, like a lynch mob of Daily Mail readers, and sometimes they mean something good, like a pint of ale in a sleepy Cotswold village in summer twilight. But just where and what is Middle England? Stuart Maconie didn't know either, so he packed his Thermos and sandwiches and set off to find out... Is Middle England about tradition and decency or closed minds and bigotry? Is it maypoles and evensong, or flooded market towns and binge drinkers in the park? And is Slough really as bad as Ricky Gervais and John Betjeman make out? From Shakespeare to JK Rowling, Vaughan Williams to Craig David, William Morris to B&Q, Stuart Maconie leads the expedition, with plenty of stop-offs for tea and scones, to discover the truth.

Book Summary:

When ten-year-old June learns she and her mother will be helping her elderly neighbor clean her attic, she thinks it will be a lot of hard work. Soon after she arrives at Mrs. Nichols’ house, June happily discovers there is much more than just “junk” within the walls of the neighbor’s musty attic. Together with her mother, Janine, who is a local seamstress, June excitedly immerses herself in each memory that Mrs. Nichols unearths from her old dusty attic. As Mrs. Nichols sorts through the boxes filled with old books and clothing, June uncovers a beautiful antique trunk squirreled away in the far corner of the attic and asks Mrs. Nichols about it. In reply, she tells her that her and Mr. Nichols took it with them when they travelled the world. Mrs. Nichols invites June to take it home to explore the many wonderful travel souvenirs that they had collected, now neatly tucked away inside the trunk. It is not long before June, with help from the talking Trunk and souvenirs, embarks on an exciting journey where she learns fun facts about Europe’s various countries, customs, and cultures.

Book Summary:

"Our Mr. Wrenn: The Romantic Adventures of a Gentle Man" is a 1914 novel by Sinclair Lewis - the first to be published under his real name. Harry Sinclair Lewis (1885 - 1951) was an American novelist, short-story writer and playwright. In 1930 he became the first writer from the United States to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. "Mr. Wrenn" was an immediate success, with reviewers citing its whimsicality - 'a story of the ordinary, serving as an antidote to modern weariness'. It tells the tale of Mr. Wrenn, an employee of a novelty company, who quits his job after inheriting a fortune from his father. From this point onwards, he decides to go travelling. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

Book Summary:

'He is as funny as Bryson and as wise as Orwell' Observer It was the spirit of our finest hour, the backbone of our post-war greatness, and it promoted some of the boldest and most brilliant schemes this isle has ever produced: it was the Welfare State, and it made you and I. But now it's under threat, and we need to save it. In this timely and provocative book, Stuart Maconie tells Britain’s Welfare State story through his own history of growing up as a northern working class boy. What was so bad about properly funded hospitals, decent working conditions and affordable houses? And what was so wrong about student grants, free eye tests and council houses? And where did it all go so wrong? Stuart looks toward Britain’s future, making an emotional case for believing in more than profit and loss; and championing a just, fairer society.

Book Summary:

Factory, mine and mill. Industry, toil and grime. Its manufacturing roots mean we still see the North of England as a hardworking place. But, more than possibly anywhere else, the North has always known how to get dressed up, take itself out on the town and have a good time. After all, working and playing hard is its specialty, and Stuart Maconie is in search of what, exactly, this entails what it tells us about the North today. Following tip offs and rumour, Stuart takes trip to forgotten corners and locals’ haunts. From the tapas bars of Halifax to the caravan parks of Berwick Upon Tweed, from a Westhoughton bowling green to Manchester’s curry mile, via dog tracks and art galleries, dance floors and high fells, Stuart compares the new and old North, with some surprising results. The Pie at Night could be seen as a companion to the bestselling Pies and Prejudice, but it is not a sequel. After all, this is a new decade and the North is changing faster than ever. This is a revealing and digressive journey and a State of the North address, delivered from barstool, terrace, dress circle and hillside.

Book Summary:

In 1841 John Timbs wrote a book called Popular Errors Explained. It went on - with Timbs' other great series 'Curiosities of ...' - to become one of the great popular books of the 19th century, running into many editions and selling hundreds of thousands of copies. Some say the popularity of his one hundred and fifty volumes led him to outsell a certain Mr Dickens. Stewart McCartney, under the Timb's title of Popular Errors Explained has created a new book, capturing the zeal and enthusiasm of the original, to be 'agreeable, by way of abstract and anecdote so as to become an advantageous and amusing guest at any intellectual fireside.' The book has completely new material - around 200 or so 'popular errors' from science and literature, history, sport, popular culture and so on. Each entry will have that eyebrow raising 'I didn't know that!' or 'Surely that cannot be true!' feel. Every one will explode a commonly held misbelief.
