Gentlemen and Players

The place is St Oswald's, an old and long

established boys' grammar school in the north of

England. A new year has just begun, and for the

staff and boys of the School, a wind of

unwelcome change is blowing. Suits, paperwork

and Information Technology rule the world, and

Roy Straitley, Latin master, eccentric, and

veteran of St Oswald's, is finally, reluctantly,

contemplating retirement. But beneath the little

rivalries, petty disputes and everyday crises of

the school, a darker undercurrent stirs. And a

bitter grudge, hidden and carefully nurtured for

thirteen years is about to erupt.

A Small Part of Me

Christina’s mother walked out on her when she

was just six years old. Now in her early thirties

Christina has reached a desperate crossroads as

a mother herself and goes on the run with her

youngest child, in a bid to find her mother, Greta,

and sanctuary from her husband and family. At

times challenged and inspired by her new alien

environment, Christina returns to memories of

her childhood. A Small Part of Me is a beautifully

evocative novel about love lost, the complexity of

parental love, the innocence of the love of a

child, and the possibility of finding a love mirror

for our souls in another human being.
