Books on the Tudors

With the current vogue for all things Tudor we thought we'd use this opportunity to highlight some of our new arrivals on the subject. These books reflecting our apparently endless fascination with the period bring a skilled analysis of the characters, power shifts and intrigues of the Tudor court. For those interested in a general overview we have two books that cover every monarch of the Tudor dynasty from Henry VII to Elizabeth 1.

With J.P. Donleavy In Ireland

With J.P. Donleavy In Ireland | Books | Scoop.it
We were in Ireland visiting my dear friend Shaun Beary who owns a beautiful rundown horse farm in County Meath. On the last day of our stay we were invited to meet Michael "J.P." Donleavy, author of The Ginger Man.

 

Mullingar is a long, narrow town and on that day it was raining heavily when we arrived. Shaun was determined that we acquire a copy of The Ginger Man so that the author might dedicate it to us. There were three booksellers in the village and we ran from one to the other without luck or an umbrella. Not only did they not have the work in question, not a single book by Donleavy was to be had in all of Mullingar. This too, for reasons I cannot explain, was also very Irish.
