New This Month
The year concludes with the fifth and final volume of H.E. Bates’s Larkin series, A Little of What You Fancy. Reader Philip Franks, star of the original TV show, The Darling Buds of May, delivers a wonderfully entertaining finale – a perfect tribute to the lively and loveable Larkin family.
A Little of What You Fancy concludes the tales of H.E. Bates’s Larkin family – a winsome gallery of characters who live as many of us would like to live ‘if only we had the guts and nerve to flout the conventions’. Pop finds himself confined to bed following a mild heart attack and he is later forced to defend his home from the ministry’s railway plans.
