Sussex Tales

Alchemy Press editor Jan Edwards has a new book, just out on Penkhull Press. Sussex Tales, is a collection of stories/memoirs of a childhood in Sussex:

Winner of the Winchester Conference Slim Volume prize. Jan Edwards’ prize-winning Sussex Tales runs a witty and thought-provoking gamut of village events and of its more curious characters. From fanged ferrets to bulls in lead masks; ancient hand grenades to exploding ginger beer; cricketing dogs to wassailing orchards, Sussex Tales weaves traditional country wines and recipes, folklore and local dialect, into stories of a farming childhood in the vanished world of 1950’s and 60’s rural life. “Superbly crafted … creating sub-plots as it unfolds with purpose and fluidity… Whether you’re from Sussex or not this is an appealing and often amusing collection of tales from a bygone age. I defy you not to like them.” – Barry Lillie

Sussex Tales is available as a print and Kindle editions from Amazon.
