New Book

Working in Parliament, you often get to know some interesting people. We come into contact with lots of journalists for example. One of whom, Andy Nicol is the political editor of The Sun. Andy has written a book, his debut novel and it will be published shortly. You can reserve a copy at Amazon here

I have to say the synopsis is a bit weird:

"Synopsis"The Good Mayor" is a magical debut novel. It is a love story and a story about love.Set in the little town of Dot in a forgotten part of the Baltic, it tells the story of Tibo Krovic, the good and honest Mayor of Dot, and his love for his secretary, the beautiful, lonely, but married, Mrs Agathe Stopak.In the quiet, respectable town of Dot, there is nothing that Tibo can do about his love for Mrs Stopak but, one day when she accidentally drops her lunch in a fountain, everything changes and their lives will never be the same again."The Good Mayor" contains love, loss, magic, friendship, wonderful food, a brass band, an Italian witch, a large lawyer, an occasional dog and a car chase that takes place at walking pace."The Good Mayor" is one of the best and most exciting debut novels in years and Andrew Nicoll is destined to become a major voice in UK literature.Read "The Good Mayor" and fall in love again. "

It sounds like an interesting read, and I'm looking forward to the launch party in Parliament on the 7th May. I hope he does really well with it.

I am a big fan of all the writing that Andy Nicol has done, there have been some fantastic pieces of late......the one that comes to mind imediatly is -
Terror pair at boozer.
