There is a great selection of titles that make great summer reads from our imprints: Eye Books, Can of Worms and Civic Books (see below) and the Hereford Times has just selected Peter Burden’s News of the world? Fake Sheikhs & Royal Trappings as one of their choices, see the review here.
For the armchair cyclist, Rob Ainsley’s 50 Quirky Bike Rides Around England & Wales takes a revolutionary look at some fun ways to take the pressure out of cycling and making it fun again. What goes around comes around.
If you want to get serious with your armchair cycling, forget Mark Beaumont (currently on BBC Two with his cycling around the world) and read Alastair Humphrey’s tandem of titles Moods of Future Joys and Thunder & Sunshine which recount with great humour and insight the reality of undertaking an around the world bicycle ride.
If mayhem and murder are more your thing, British Comedy Award winner Chips Hardy’s Each Day A Small Victory is described by best selling author Jake Arnott (The Long Firm) as ‘Pulp Fiction meets Wind in the Willows’, and in Can of Worms’s graphic version of Othello the page becomes the stage for Shakespeare’s tragedy of jealousy, passion, deceit and the destruction of overwhelming love.
