  • A Voyage For Madmen by Peter Nichols
    A Voyage For Madmen (Paperback) Peter Nichols

    In 1968, nine men - six Englishmen, two Frenchmen and an Italian - set out to try, a race born of coincidence of their timing. One didn't even know how to sail. This is a true story of the inaugural 1968 Golden Globe sailing race: the first single-handed non-stop circumnavigation of the world.

  • Joe Egg by Peter Nichols
    Joe Egg (English, Paperback) Peter Nichols

    This brilliantly written, deeply moving play about the problems of a young couple with a spastic daughter-the "Joe Egg" of the title-was described by Ronald Bryden in The Observer (London) as a "remarkable play about a nightmare all women must have dreamed at some time, and most men: living with a child born so hopelessly crippled as to be, as the father in it says brutally, a human parsnip. For all that, it has to be described as a comedy, one of the funniest and most touching I've seen. The bridge between its form and content is a simple but brilliant stroke of theatre. Over the years, the author implies, explaining to others how one lives with such a situation becomes a kind of set party piece. This, savagely exaggerated, is what he has written-a recital, interspersed with jazz, imitations and tap-dances, about life with Joe Egg."

    Ted Forrest is a playwright with a problem - writer's block. When we first meet him - bitter, disillusioned and consumed with envy of Miles Whittier, a younger, more successful playwright - he has retreated to the country in an attempt to stimulate his creative impotence by writing an autobiographical novel. But this proves just as difficult and so he turns it into a play about himself and the...
