Three angels on a tricycle
  “The greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”
Roald Dahl

The zest of the rest.
 
  OK, yes, we admit it, this is
something of a catch-all section. However, unlike the ‘miscellaneous’
drawer in the filing cabinet which fills
up with all the things people can’t be
bothered to file properly, this section
really does contain books which are
difficult to categorise.
 
  My Year as Manx Bard does what
it says on the cover and describes
a year in the life of the Manx Bard as
well as providing some information
about general bardic history.
What really places the book in the
‘catch-all section’, however, is that
it also contains quite a lot of the
poetry written by the Manx Bard
during the year.
 
  Sites & Stories is both fiction and
non-fiction. The book takes a dozen
of the many attractions around the
Isle of Man, sets a short story in each
of them and follows the fiction with
some factual information about the
attraction. Twelve chapters,
twelve attractions, twelve stories,
twelve sets of information.
 
  What Nobody Sees, on the other hand,
is emphatically non-fiction, and is
harrowing in places. It shows,
however, just what one person can do
if they put their mind to it.
Anne-Pia’s struggle against disability,
some of it caused by medical
negligence, is inspiring. An
astonishing book; an astonishing life.
 
  So, if you’re looking for something
a bit different, we hope you find
it here.
