 BLACKWELLS LAUNCH FOR GREVEL LINDOP'S CHARLES WILLIAMS BIOGRAPHY


More than a hundred people turned up on a rainy night in Oxford yesterday to hear Grevel Lindop speak about his truly magnificent biography of Charles Williams. Williams has a passionate following in all his many different roles - as poet, theologian, publisher, literary critic, writer of fantasy fiction, and enthusiast of the occult. Many of these followers were there last night so there was a meeting of very different disciplines! Grevel spoke brilliantly and Blackwells sold out. As Grevel said - this is perhaps the strangest story in twentieth century literature and this is a simply first class biography that I think will pave the way for a rediscovery of Williams.

 100 YEARS SINCE THE DEATH OF W.G. GRACE


Today is the anniversary of WG - the subject of Richard Tomlinson's just-published biography 'Amazing Grace - the Man who was WG'. It has had stellar review is the Telegraph, Sunday Times, Daily Mail, Independent and Mail on Sunday and contains at least 80% completely new material. Based on meticulous research, the book corrects and debunks a great many so-called facts and presents a really compelling portrait of a tortured genius who was sport's first international superstar.

 COVENTRY BY FREDERICK TAYLOR PUBLISHED


Yesterday was publication day of Fred's magnificent and definitive new book - an utterly fascinating history of the bombing of Coventry - a turning point in WW2 and whose 75th anniversary takes place on 14th November - when there is going to be a huge amount of coverage. The book has already received huge praise from Sir Ian Kershaw. It is a companion volume to his DRESDEN which was an international bestseller a few years ago.

 ANDY MULLIGAN'S LIQUIDATOR PUBLISHED


Last week saw the launch of Andy Mulligan's thrilling new YA novel LIQUIDATOR  with David Fickling Books. Andy's TRASH was an international bestseller racking up sales worldwide of half a million copies and filmed by Working title, directed by Stephen Daldry. (The DVD is out now) The new novel, which he has been promoting with appearances at Cheltenham and Bath festivals, has a gripping plot in which a group of schoolchildren try to thwart the plan of an evil multinational company to launch a new and dangerously addictive 'power drink' which has had lethal effects on its unwitting trial subjects. It is one of the most exciting novels I have ever read in terms of sheer speed and inventiveness of plot and it is fuelled by a righteous and very timely anger. Totally recommended to anyone over 12!

For publication mid 2017 this will reveal the real woman behind so many myths and assumptions and tell the true story of her relationship with her now husband.
