 LEAD REVIEW IN SUNDAY TIMES


Great to come back from holiday to see the wonderful review of James Sharpe's history of violence in England 'A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE today. The Times review is as glowing and more coming in - it's a book that grabs the reader as despite its 750 pages it has so many unforgettable anecdotes.

 NICK KNOWLES TO BBC BOOKS


Nick has a  passion for the kind of vegetarian and vegan food that makes a proper family meal. BBC books have pre-empted rights in his first cookery book which will come out this January. This is full of recipes that are attractive, nutritious and will appeal to active healthy males as well as slimmers. There's a big marketing campaign and Nick's going to be the new name in sensible 'flexitarian' cooking.

AUGUST, 2016

 A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE


This late summer season is always exciting as finished copies of autumn books begin to arrive. The first of these is the utterly magnificent magnum opus by Emeritus Professor James Sharpe A FIERY AND FURIOUS PEOPLE; A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE IN ENGLAND.

The book is the culmination of thirty years work as a leading social historian with a particular interest in crime and covers seven centuries of the brutal underside of our national life in all its variety. It is a work that I predict will be one of the most reviewed of the autumn and is an utterly transfixing read.
