An Italian Village: a perspective on life beside Lake Como

Paul Wright


An Italian Village: a perspective on life beside Lake Como

English artist Paul Wright and his partner, Nicola moved to the village of Moltrasio, on the shore of Lake Como in northern Italy in 1993, moving to the small, unspoiled village of Argegno in the early 2000s. In this, the follow up to his successful debut book, ‘An Italian Home’, Paul describes Italian village life, particularly focussing on the Italian male. His regular dialogue with a group of men who have retired, mostly from the catering trade, punctuates his adventures beyond the village boundaries for all manner of clients, both reputable and not so reputable in the surrounding area and beyond, to the Italian Riviera.

After selling some of his trademark Trompe L’Oeil painted furniture to an American client, he finds himself working for one of them at his home in New England, and enjoying a break in New York City, where he discusses the art market. With his typical Liverpudlian humour, Paul pulls no punches in describing the behaviour, likes, dislikes and prejudices of the people he meets.

Dairy Cows and Duck Races - the Tale of a Young Farmer

Philip Dixon


Dairy Cows and Duck Races - the Tale of a Young Farmer

As a boy, all Northumbrian-born Philip Dixon wanted in life was to be a farmer. In Dairy Cows and Duck Races he tells the story of how he got there, starting work on a farm at the age of fifteen, along the way handling many temperamental bulls, meeting some very “witchy” women, getting married and raising a family, acquiring his own farm and being part of the Round Table team that invented the plastic duck race!

Life was not altogether easy for Philip: an accident left him unable to run the farm safely, and his next business was brought to bankruptcy by some very dirty tricks. But he picked himself up and fought on, with a strength and optimism that shines through in every page.

Dairy Cows and Duck Races, a tale of rural life set in Northumbria and Yorkshire in the north of England between the mid-1960s and early 1980s is filled with colourful and fascinating characters, some coming from a generation that is all but lost to us.
