Wivenhoe Bookshop and Dunlin Press invite you to the Wivenhoe launch of Boot Sale Harvest by Adrian May. The event will feature Adrian in conversation with writer and social historian Ken Worpole.

In Boot Sale Harvest, author, poet and songwriter Adrian May takes a seasonal journey through the car-boot fields that artist Grayson Perry has described as being like a “casual museum”. In the boot sales of Essex we discover the lost and found of everyday life, and begin to reclaim the “things that the everyday folks leave behind”. And in the bricolage of overlooked histories we learn of forgotten writers, of fairy tales, of the need for magic and humour, and of love and loss and everything in between.

“Delightfully engaging and suitably eclectic in style, Boot Sale Harvest is a welcome celebration of the wonders of rummaging, of seeking treasures on a Sunday morning. Generously warm in tone, this is a must-have book for all who love the joy of picking among the bric-a-brac. Glorious.”

Dr James Canton, author of Grounded and The Oak Papers
