Winston and the Canny Lass

Really, really powerful. A poignant tale of love and family life, with all its imperfections, frustrations, sadness and humour. Full of memorable characters with a heart warming feel-good end. Somebody should make this book into a film

I’ve followed Barry Stone’s work for over twenty years. It’s as rich with the unexpected as it is easily readable. I jumped at the opportunity to publish Winston and the Canny Lass

‘We were at a dinner party hosted by a mutual friend and he asked if I would illustrate the cover. Given the success of Barking at Winston I was more than happy to oblige’
