Doubtful Sounds

Bill Manhire takes the books and poems he loves out of the pupil and lecture hall and returns them to their readers. In these pages unlikely people rub shoulders - Ralph Hotere and Philip Larkin, Sylivia Plath and James K. Baxter, Maurice Gee and Laura Ranger - Then along the way Manhire investigates why the world's best poems sound like dirty songs, tell outrageous lies, and thrive on their own mistakes. These essays and interviews will not tell you what to think, but they will probably inspire you to do your own thinking.

The Daily Telegraph Book of Military Obituaries

Following on from the great success of the first volume, the paperback of which is still in print, the Daily Telegraph's chief obituary writer has assembled another one hundred pithy insights into a plethora of fascinating lives, all published in the newspaper since 2000. This second collection bears eloquent testimony to the gallant qualities shown by our soldiers. It includes such Victoria Cross holders as the Gurkha Ganju Lama and the tank commander Pip Gardener; Major-General "Bala" Bredin, who refused to wear a helmet yet won three DSOs and two MCs; and the Brigadier David Block, the deadly accurate gunner at Monte Cassino. But although most of the actions described occurred in the Second World War, Warrant Officer "Muscles" Strong proved a tower of strength to the 1917 cavalry charge at Huj in the Sinai Desert; and the doctor Major Vanessa Lloyd-Davies dismissed the danger of being under fire in Bosnia in 1993 by saying she had faced worse when riding hard with the Quorn Hunt in Leicestershire. As Andrew Roberts wrote of the first collection: 'They evoke swirling, profound, even guilty emotions ... To those Britons who have known only peace, these are thought provoking and humbling essays in valour.'
