A Walk in the Park: The Life and Times of a People's Institution

Hardback
by Elborough, Travis
Parks are such a familiar part of everyday life. You might be forgiven for thinking they have always been there - and that they always will. In fact, the roots of even the most humble neighbourhood park lie in age-old battles over land and liberty. From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds to their modern incarnation as public spaces teeming with activity, theirs is a story of land-grabbing ...

Our Man in Havana

Paperback
by Graham Greene
One of Graham Greene’s most popular books, Our Man in Havana has all the usual trademarks of a Greene novel (foreign locale, one man, a higher power and the perversion thereof), except instead of being a taught thriller, Greene’s wit shines through and proves to be as blackly comic as one could imagine.

Paperback
by Haruki Murakami
In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit.
