Notes from a Small Island
Notes from a Small Island

Bill Bryson is an unabashed Anglophile who, through a mistake of history, happened to be born and bred in Iowa. Righting that error, he spent 20 years in England before deciding to repatriate: "I had recently read that 3.7 million Americans according to a Gallup poll, believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another, so it was clear that my people needed me." That comic tone enlivens this account of Bryson's farewell walking tour of the countryside of "the green and kindly island that had for two decades been my home."

Price: £5.59

Stately Secrets: Behind-the-scenes Stories from the Stately Homes of Britain
Stately Secrets: Behind-the-scenes Stories from the Stately Homes of Britain

Everything is not always what it seems behind the doors of the stately homes of Britain, and it's often the stories that the tour guide didn't tell you as you wandered in wonderment around the grand houses that are the most revealing and entertaining. In this witty and irreverent book the Seventh Earl of Bradford uncovers the stories that you won't hear from the guide. Full of first-hand true tales told to Lord Bradford by his fellow peers, butlers, maids, gardeners and chauffeurs, Stately Secrets captures in brilliant, hilarious colour the real life behind the scenes - from Page 3 girls in the four-poster bedroom to the Countess surprised in her bath!
