From the moment pub landlord and keen amateur entomologist, Arnold Matson, arrives in Blinkington-on-the-Treacle to take over his new hostelry, we are led through a colourful collection of vignettes... More > and poignant flashbacks that are both comically funny and disturbingly familiar. Set in an imaginary backwater village, ‘Dandruff’ dips delightfully into the intricacies and miniscule absurdities of everyday life. Mayfield’s world blends originality with an amalgamation of Dylan Thomas, P.G. Wodehouse, G.K. Chesterton and Alan Bennett and can accurately be described as ‘kite flying for the imagination.’< Less

Comitatus: An Anthology of Creative Compositions By Br. Benedict Lacombe, O.Cist.
Paperback: List Price: $7.80 $3.90 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is necessary in every artistic field to "set up shop" with great artists, to learn from them, to imitate their style, and then, after mastering the tradition, to develop one's own style.... More > "A Creative Writer's Workshop" was an exploration of this method of learning. Before each of the three major writing assignments of the semester, most of which are contained within this volume, we read and discussed exemplary works of creative writing, with the hope that we would develop some understanding of what beautiful writing looks and sounds like. With the prose of Flannery O'Connor, James Joyce and G.K. Chesterton fresh in our minds, we set out to produce works that could, in some small way, draw upon our new-found understanding of the art of writing. Whether we were successful in this endeavor is for you to decide, but we hope you will find enjoyment in our efforts.< Less

Paperback: $25.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The great merit of this biography by E.E. Reynolds is that it vividly portrays the whole More, his spiritual life as well as his court, family, social, and intellectual activity. More brought his... More > religion into the smallest detail of his life. He is the ideal saint for the modern layman, and in these pages we see why. He lived the Faith—before dying for it. "Thomas More is more important at this moment than at any moment since his death, even perhaps the great moment of his dying; but he is not quite as important as he will be in about a hundred years’ time. he may come to be counted the greatest Englishman, or at least the greatest historical character in English history.” G.K. Chesterton< Less
