Last-minute shopping can be stressful but these three collections will keep any discerning friend or relative happy.
FRIENDS: A Poem for Every Day of the Year
Edited by Jane McMorland Hunter
A wonderful collection of poems to dip into every day. Many of the most beautiful poems ever written were to friends, from Emily Brontë and Stevie Smith, to John Keats and Norman MacCaig. Many lesser-known works are included and the collection will delight and surprise in equal measure.
£20 Hardback, signed copies available
THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS CRACKER
Edited by Artemis Cooper, introduction by Julian Fellowes
In 1969 Lord Norwich produced a small pamphlet for his friends containing a selection of pieces that had charmed, amused or entertained him during the year. By the time of his death in 2018 these little booklets were eagerly awaited by thousands of people who had never met him but appreciated his gentle sense of humour and view of the world. This collection includes the fiftieth and final Cracker, along with a selection of earlier pieces chosen by his daughter, Artemis Cooper.
THE LITTLE LIBRARY YEAR: Recipes and Reading to Suit Each Season
Following on from The Little Library Cookbook, Kate Young now guides us though the seasons: ‘The long winter nights’, ‘The first signs of spring’, ‘The height of summer’ to ‘When the leaves start to fall’. Twelve months of reading and cooking, what could be more enjoyable?
