Spalding bookshop’s pick for a good read

Have your say

Bookmark in Spalding has selected The Sty’s the Limit When Middle Age Gets Mucky as its book of the week.

Years ago, after a drunken misunderstanding, Simon Dawson gave up his job in the city, moved to the wilds of Exmoor and became an accidental self-sufficient smallholder surrounded by animals.

But now his life is changing all over again: horror of horrors, he’s getting older.

Enlisting a cast of best friends – including Ziggy, a panicked soon-to-be father, Garth, an annoying teenager, and the General, a rather handsome pig – to work through their age-related angsts, a plan is hatched to help each other mature (or immature).

Hilarity and heartfelt discoveries ensue – all with a fair dose of animal madness along the way.

Join Simon and co in this uplifting laugh-out-loud antidote to middle age in the mud; a place where you truly realise that the sty’s the limit!

Take the voucher in the Spalding Guardian of October 29 to Bookmark between now and Wednesday, November 4 for a 20 per cent discount off The Sty’s the Limit When Middle Age Gets Mucky by Simon Dawson.
