Holywood Star
Author: Eamon Nancarrow           ISBN 978-0-9563900-0-4
Size 234x156mm. Paperback. 358pp.  £9.99
Edited and produced by The Choir Press.

This is a hilarious and poignant tale of a rock star wannabe growing up in Holywood. That’s Holywood with one ‘el’ - the Holywood in Belfast not the one where they make the talkies.  There isn’t much glamour and glitz for this Holywood Star but Eamon Nancarrow’s autobiography of his life as a rock ‘n roll misadventurer is one of the funniest books we’ve come across. If you have ever aspired to something and failed to make the grade you will appreciate the story and the self-deprecating humour from this very funny author.

Pipe Lids and Hedgehogs
Author: Gerald Stewart           ISBN 978-0-9563798-0-1
Size 216x140mm. Paperback. 128pp.  £9.99
Produced by The Choir Press. Edited and Published by Frederica Freer

Gerald Stewart was born in 1925 in the Cotswold village of Coberley, spending his childhood at

Winstone and Duntisbourne Abbots. These interesting and well-written memoirs describe growing up in rural Gloucestershire, where he led a happy, contented life in the company of his brothers and sisters, with a freedom largely unknown to children today.

This is a charming and modestly written autobiography, dedicated that evokes an interesting and fulfilling life in the Cotswolds which, apart from the war years, has been spent within a ten mile radius of the author’s birthplace.
