The Bookshop Book is a beautiful book put together by author and bookseller Jen Campbell which celebrates bookshops from all over the world. The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents. Authors chatting in the book include Bill Bryson, Audrey Niffenegger, Ian Rankin, Jacqueline Wilson … and me!

There’s a beautiful article in the August 2014 Sainsbury’s magazine looking at our life here in France, and talking about how we like to shop the local markets and the way we eat as a family. It includes three of our favourite recipes, all simple, economic and family friendly (as well as very tasty!)
“This is a book that demands something of the reader and gives much in return.” *****
“The picturesque setting of Southern France in the midst of a heat wave is almost hypnotic.” ****
“Pea and Margot are characters who stay with you, long after the last page is turned” *****
