"Kevin Jackson's 'Mayflower - the voyage from hell' is a timely and absorbing account of the three thousand mile, sixty-five day voyage through storms and headwinds of a small converted cargo ship which landed, much further north than intended, on November 9th 1620, in Plymouth Harbour, Cape Cod. There are countless myths about the voyage - including the very existence of a stepping-stone called Plymouth Rock, which was actually invented 121 years later - and Jackson's balanced narrative steers a well-researched course through fact and fable, taking us safely to the arrival of the intrepid Saints and Strangers in New England. All in all, this is a genial companion to the four-hundredth anniversary..."

"An unexpected delight. It is an ideal mixture of taking me into the lives of producers and also telling me how to cook well."

Sheila Dillon, presenter R4 Food Programme

The Borough Market Cookbook, published by Civic Books, was Sheila Dillon’s pick for the Radio 4 Food Programme’s Cookbook of the Year. The book is the result of a wonderful collaboration of devotees of the world famous London market celebrating food and cooking. 101 plus recipes cover canapes, starters, main courses and signature dishes sourced from the producers and traders who are relentlessly passionate about their livestock and livelihood and for whom provenance is paramount.

"The series constitutes an excellent unpatronising introduction to Shakespeare."
