Greenwich by Charles Jennings

Book Description

There is probably not a London suburb with more intense historical connections, more diversity and more astonishing buildings and artefacts than Greenwich. There are sections on MARITIME GREENWICH - home of the Maritime museum and the CUTTY SARK; ROYAL GREENWICH - Greenwich Park was Henry VIII's favourite residence and where he met Anne Boelyn; SCIENTIFIC GREENWICH - home of the Royal Observatory and GMT and of course The Dome itself...What's it going to be like compared to similar vast jamborees - the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the Festival Britain of 1951, what is that strange fabric stretched over those yellow spikes and WHO is going to settle in the 1400-home Millennium Village, to be opened in 2000, with the remains of the old gasworks lying a couple of feet below?

Sediment by Charles Jennings Sediment, Hardback (November 2014)

For people who wouldn't know a Chateau d'Yquem from a can of orange Tango, help is at hand. Sediment is a wry look at the social, financial (and marital) issues surrounding middle-aged, middle-class wine drinking. For those of us who fail to detect notes of citrus, but mainly get a hint of alcohol with a grapey finish, the book is the perfect gift.
