Later this month Vagabond Voices will be publishing the second volume of Barking Up the Right Tree, an anthology of my articles for The National newspaper. The book is due to be published on 31 October, but if you place your order beforehand, there’s a special offer of £1 off the cover price and free P&P within the UK. (P&P is £4.50 outwith the UK.)
You can get your copy of the book for the special advance order price by placing an order on the Vagabond Voices website. Just click the following link.
