Up North by Charles Jennings
Book DescriptionThe North. Where does it begin? Where does it end? And is it all whippets, black pudding and queer folk going rounds saying "There's nowt so queer as folk"? Fresh from the PJ O'Rourke School of Diplomatic Journalism, southern jessie Charles Jennings finds himself in need of Answers. With something approaching trepidation, Jennings packs his big girl's blouse in a suitcase full of prejudice and ventures fearfully into the great melting-pot that is the North of England - undergoing in the process a series of life changing experiences such as being mistaken for an exhibit at the Wigan Pier: Where History Comes Alive! Museum and voluntarily attending a concert featuring Roy Walker. Scandalous, astonishingly rude, scabrously funny, Up North presents the quintissential northern experience.

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.
