From the publisher

George and Emma are amongst the characters from earlier novels who make a return in this book about publishing.  All areas are explored from the perils of a humble printing press to the giants of the greater publishing world, based on the author’s own experiences of producing his own books.

“It’s as accomplished, as entertaining and as outstanding as anything its author has done”  D.J.Taylor, The Spectator
