Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland awardsHuge congratulations to Sally Magnusson who last night won the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Writing Award for her bestselling memoir Where Memories Go: why dementia changes everything

Sally couldn’t attend the ceremony so we don’t have any glamorous pics to share, but you can find out more here: http://bit.ly/glenfiddichawards

A wonderful video interview with Sally Magnusson, author of Where Memories Go: why dementia changes everything.

Sally talks about her mother, caring for someone with dementia, and the writing process of the book. It’s truly brilliant and very moving, we urge you to have a look.

It was first featured on Writer Stories TV (http://www.writerstories.tv/), a literature news site from the Summerhall TV team.

 

Our website has a new page! Just click here to discover more about Carrie Snyder‘s brilliant debut novel Girl Runner, published by Two Roads in February 2015.

Part historical page-turner, part contemporary mystery, Girl Runner is an engaging and endearing story about family, ambition, athletics and the dedicated pursuit of one’s passions with a formidable protagonist at its core, 104-year-old former Olympic athlete Aganetha Smart.

Not convinced yet? Well then, listen to an audio excerpt below to hear the voices of the novel come to life: we can assure you, you’ll want to find out more after that!

It's pub dayThe time has finally come: today Two Roads publishes Life, Love and The Archers, the first ever collection of prose by beloved poet Wendy Cope.

Wendy Cope has long been one of the nation’s best-loved poets, with her sharp eye for human foibles and wry sense of humour. For the first time, Life, Love and the Archers brings together the best of her prose – recollections, reviews and essays from the light-hearted to the serious, taken from a lifetime of published and unpublished work, and all with Cope’s lightness of touch.

A book for anyone who’s ever fallen in love, tried to give up smoking, or consoled themselves that they’ll never be quite as old as Mick Jagger.

Publicity for the book has kicked off with an interview on Radio 4 Front Row (which you can find here, from 12:35, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04n338d) and a pick as Non-Fiction Book of the Month in Good Housekeeping, which called Wendy’s writing ‘always witty and insightful’.

Wendy has also recorded the audio edition of the book (we posted a picture from the recording session a little while ago: click here) and we have an exclusive extract here: http://bit.ly/wendycopeaudiobook
