• No More Champagne heads the list of ‘Best biographies of 2015′ in The Wall Street Journal

    27 Nov 2015

    David Lough’s No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money continues to gather superb reviews:

    “This book brilliantly illuminates one of the few unexplored aspects of Winston Churchill’s life – his private finances. Based on a wealth of fresh documentary evidence, it also reveals much about his larger-than-life character. In these fascinating pages Churchill emerges as extravagant in every way, especially in his addiction to risk.” Piers Brendon

    “This excellent and entertaining work is worth reading for the lists of more than 1,000 bottles of champagne and 250 bottles of brandy that Churchill got through in 1949 alone”.Vicky Pryce, Prospect

    “This is the first biography to focus on Churchill’s business affairs. To view someone from just one angle is usually to deform them, but David Lough, drawing on compelling material including Churchill’s tax records, more than justifies his audit” Nicholas Shakespeare, Daily Telegraph

    “a surprising page-turner” The Economist

  • David McGrath is a hit with Waverton Good Reads

    19 Nov 2015

    David McGrath recently gave a reading at a meeting of Waverton Good Reads, after which all copies of his exhilarating debut novel Rickshaw were quickly snapped up.

    ‘David McGrath writes for ‘my mates in the pub who never read’, but the rapid sale of copies of Rickshaw after his performance of a scene from this novel to a room of avid readers tells you that his appeal is much broader than that. No, he doesn’t like adverbs and he avoids flowery descriptive language. Instead, he uses sparse narrative and superb dialogue to say it all.’ Gwen Goodhew - Waverton Good Read Award
