Anonymity by John Mullan
Book DescriptionMany of the great books of English literature were first published without their authors' names upon them. But why did authors choose anonymity? And how did it excite the curiosity of their first readers? Ranging from the sixteenth century to the present day, "Anonymity" looks at the ways in which the disguises of writers such as Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte were first used to tease readers (and bamboozle critics). It is a gripping and fascinating fast-paced tour of many of the greatest works in English, and will enrich and reward all who love to read.

Spire, Paperback (November 2013)
Dean Jocelin has a vision: that God has chosen him to erect a great spire on his cathedral. His mason anxiously advises against it, for the old cathedral was built without foundations. Nevertheless, the spire rises octagon upon octagon, pinnacle by pinnacle. Its shadow falls ever darker on the world below, and on Dean Jocelin in particular.
