“And I don’t like letters. They make trouble. They’re sly and underhand. They may be going past ye in broad daylight and you not know. I never write a letter myself if I can help it; it’s putting words in jail, and it’s not the man alone who puts them in can get them out again; too many have the keys.”
The students on the MSc Publishing course are from all around the world, so we thought that it would be nice if you could hear our collection of different accents, whilst also listening to an extract of The New Road. This extract comes from Chapter Twenty Four, and reading out this first section are Carmen from Spain, Hannah from England and Ester from Iceland. We hope to get the written extract up soon to accompany the audio, and more recordings will be coming soon. Enjoy!
We are pleased to announce that we will be going ahead with publishing The New Road as an e-book. Our team are excited to work on producing an electronic book, and hope we can make this classic novel available to a new generation.
