Featured local author title: The Naples of England by Andy Miller (Wirksworth)
The War is over and a generation returns home to build peace, determined to create a new society, protected from cradle to grave. On the beautiful Dorset coast, baby boomer, Andy Miller, grows up surrounded by the security and nurture of the 1950s welfare state that will propel him from council estate to university. In a series of vignettes and stories, some humorous and some poignant, the author describes growing up in this vanished post-War world. What happens then when one day, decades later, he discovers that everything he thought was true is not? This is a memoir of family, truth and secrets and what it was like to grow up in Britain in the years following the Second World War.
We currently stock approximately 50,000 new titles covering almost every topic imaginable. To paraphrase our previous new books buyer, Guy, from the video about the bookshop; rather than stock many copies of a single book, we prefer to stock single copies of many books, therefore allowing us to cram as many books into the shop as is possible.
Eve and David keep our stock brimming with new releases and a fair section of the ground floor is given over to showcasing these new titles. The paperback displays are refreshed at the start of each month (and have £1 off) and the new hardback releases are displayed with between £1-£8 off.
If we don’t have what you’re looking for on the shelf, then please tell us – we may just take your recommendation and start stocking it. And if you require something ordering, we can usually get it in within 24 hours (if in print and still available).
As yet we don’t have such a thing as an online ordering system for new titles – save for a few randomly selected books to be found on this website – so should you wish to order or reserve via the website, an online enquiry form is your only option…
