Where Shall We Run To?: A Memoir

Where Shall We Run To?: A Memoir

Author: Alan Garner Narrator: Robert Powell Release Date: 01/08/2018

From one of our greatest living writers, comes a remarkable memoir of a forgotten England. 'The war went. We sang in the playground, 'Bikini lagoon, an atom bomb's boom, and two big explosions.' David's father came back from Burma and didn't eat rice. Twiggy taught by reciting "The Pied Piper of Hamelin", "The Charge of the Light Brigade" and the thirteen times table. Twiggy was fat and short and he shouted, and his neck was as wide as his head. He was a bully, though he didn't take any notice of me.' In Where Shall We Run To?, Alan Garner remembers his early childhood in the Cheshire village of Alderley Edge: life at the village school as 'a sissy and a mardy-arse'; pushing his friend Harold into a clump of nettles to test the truth of dock leaves; his father joining the army to guard the family against Hitler; the coming of the Yanks, with their comics and sweets and chewing gum. From one of our greatest living writers, it is a remarkable and evocative memoir of a vanished England.

Boneland

Boneland

Author: Alan Garner Narrator: Robert Powell, Thomas Goose Release Date: 01/09/2012

Boneland is Alan Garner's continuation of the story thread which began in his first and enduringly popular fantasy children's novel, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen. The Weirdstone was published in 1960 (it has never been out of print since), and The Moon of Gomrath followed, in 1963. This took the story further with the same two children, Colin and Susan. But Boneland is particularly fascinating because it takes the story into adulthood, with Colin again the main proponent. Boneland is read by the experienced actor Robert Powell, at the request of Alan Garner himself.

The Weirdstone of Brisingamen

Author: Alan Garner Narrator: Philip Madoc Release Date: 01/03/2006

'The heart of the magic was sealed with Firefrost, the Weirdstone of Brisingamen … should Nastrond destroy the stone, then the magic will die away.' When Colin and Susan are pursued by eerie creatures across Alderley Edge, the Wizard - Cadellin Silverbrow - takes them to safety deep in the caves of Fundindelve. Here he watches over the enchanted sleep of one hundred and forty knights, awaiting the fated hour when they must rise and fight. But the Weirdstone of Brisingamen is lost and the forces of evil are closing in. The children realise that they are the key to its return, but how can they defeat the powerful magic of the Morrigan and her deadly brood? First published in 1960, four decades before Harry Potter, Alan Garner's novel of magic and wizards has endured and become a modern classic of children's literature.
