SOMETIMES IN BATH by Charles Nevin


You might not expect a book that's not about herbs or skincare to appear here but we LOVE this book! Of course BATH is a favourite city - and very near us. 

So please, dear Reader, read on...

SOMETIMES IN BATH is Charles Nevin's new collection of stories covering 2,000 years of life in the magic city. 

Thrill to tales of old King Bladud and the Wife of Bath; Bow to King Alfred, Beau Nash, Dr  Johnson, Lord Nelson and the Emperor Haile Selassie; Gasp as Mr Bennet escapes Mrs Bennet and (sort of) enjoys a trip out amid wild Regency rakishness! 
All this and more from Britain's first, finest,  fanciest and thrillingest resort!

Sometimes In Bath is available here and from all discerning bookshops now!  And of course right here!


Charles Nevin falls rather neatly into the "National Treasure" category - a fine writer with a pronounced, wry sense of humour. His latest book is gloriously observational and is punctuated by moments of real class - indeed, genius. I cannot recommend " Sometimes in Bath " more is a joy from beginning to end. Buy it...    Ian Ross on Sometimes In Bath. 

"This is a book of pure delight. Charles Nevin is a writer of wit, charm, and above all, humour," Matthew Fort on Lost In The Wash And Other Things. 

"Very funny ... strongly recommended," Francis Wheen on Lost In The Wash With Other Things. 

"An absolute joy . . . an admirable, engaging portrait. Nevin has a wonderful eye for observation." Joanna Lumley in The Times on Lancashire, Where Women Die Of Love. 

CHARLES NEVIN has written for, among others, The Guardian, The Independent on Sunday, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Sunday Times and The New York Times. He has just published his first book of fiction, Lost In The Wash With Other Things, short stories set then and now. He has also published three books of non-fiction. The first, Lancashire, Where Women Die of Love, a paean to the neglected romance of his native county, was praised by Jeremy Paxman, Joanna Lumley and the Southport Visiter; Professor J K Walton, quondam Professor of Social History at The University of Central Lancashire, considered it 'frivolous' but allowed it to be 'thought-provoking'. The second, The Book of Jacks, a history and lexicon of our most popular first name and the remarkable characters who have borne it, failed to achieve the success it deserved; indeed, a month after publication, the publisher said, 'It may be, Charles, that you and I are the only two people in the world who think this book is a good idea'. Charles still likes it. His third, So Long Our Home, a history of Knowsley Road, the famous old ground of St Helens Rugby Football Club, written with Alex Service, the club historian, is very popular in St Helens. He lives in an old watermill in Somerset just behind the railway station.
