An Englishman's Home

The incredible story of Tom Hart Dyke, who was held captive by guerillas between Panama and Columbia and tried to keep his sanity by dreaming of a "world garden" that he actually started to create after he was safely back in Kent at his ancient family home, Lullingstone Castle.

An Englishman's Home charts the highs and lows of Tom's quest to build his garden with plants from all over the globe and make it a tourist attraction and centre for plant enthusiasts.

England Calling - 24 Stories for the 21st Century

Julia Bell and Jackie Gay have brought together twenty-four outstanding writers, including Lesley Glaister, Kevin Sampson, Julia Darling, Andrea Ashworth, Harland Miller, Alexei Sayle, Julie Burchill, Jane Rogers, Joolz Denby and David Almond in this brilliant anthology that boldly examines the contemporary landscape of England.


"England Calling draws an utterly convincing literary map of this restless nation as it wriggles in the throes of a profound identity crisis. It works as a social document but also, much more importantly, as a simply terrific story collection - full of humour, tragedy, hope, despair, struggle and triumph - just like the country whose ever-changing moods it sets out to record." Jonathan Coe
