Richard Tomlinson' brilliant new biography of W.G Grace was chosen by the Guardian on Saturday as its book of the week ahead of its publication next week. The book includes so much original material from long-buried archives in England and Australia and is such an engrossing read that it will establish itself as the definitive biography of this much misunderstood cricketing genius who was in many respects the father of modern sport.

Finally updated my virtual bookshelf which now shows some of the agency's forthcoming autumn highlights as well as spring and summer books. Do browse - it's an especially strong list currently with some long-term clients producing especially brilliant work.

The author of THE MAN WHO BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ, war hero Denis Avey, died this morning at the age of 96. He was a great man in every sense, a towering physical presence and someone who lived by the precept that if good men didn't make a stand then evil would triumph. In his last days his memory returned to the full horror of war and tragically he revisited some of the worst of the things he had seen. Those of us who were lucky enough to meet him will remember him always with huge affection and admiration.

Linda Blair's first column for the Telegraph 'Mental Healing' appeared this morning. She's a brilliant incisive and warm communicator and the feedback is already tremendously positive. She'll be appearing there every Monday. Linda's 30 years of clinical practice and multiple degrees from top US and UK universities give her the most authoritative of voices and she now sells out every venue at literary festivals and is in increasing demand as a corporate speaker.

This is a unique day in the history of the agency. On BBC 2 client Martin Hughes- Games (author of A WILD LIFE) appears on 'Springwatch'; on ITV Johnny Kingdom is showing viewers the flora and fauna of his Exmoor home and Bantam have just reprinted his autobiography, while on C4 Kevin McCloud begins his new 4 part series 'Escape to the Wild'. There's a theme going on here!
