We were sad to hear of the death Beryl Bainbridge whose last novel, 'According to Queeney' was widely praised as was most of her work. She had many nominations for the Booker and twice won the Whitbread prize.
She also has a tenuous connection with our shop through Jane Bailey who will be here to sign her two books on Saturday July 10. It was Beryl Bainbridge who recommended Jane to her agent.
We were reminded by Jane that she has a web site of her own (something we've not got around to yet) Do look up www.jane-bailey.co.uk
