About the Book

The novel follows the whimsical and amusing journey of audio technician Greg Ives, as he spends a week in Newcastle adjusting customers' hi-fi equipment on behalf of his employers, Deci-Belle. When he comes to stay with the Gillespie family, he finds them to be friendly and welcoming, yet peculiar in their opinions and understanding of the world.  This is especially true of Mrs Gillespie whose warped view of the world causes a great deal of confusion, yet a certain amount of amusement for Greg. The novel is interesting and entertaining, and the storyline is humorous and thoughtful, much like Hi-Fidelity by Nick Hornby.

About the Author

J. H. Brogden lives in York in England.  He is an avid listener of radio plays, interested in Indian philosophy, and passionate about classical/romantic music and European folk music.  His writing is inspired by events and characters he has encountered. This is his third full-length novel, having previously published Gregorian Chant and Making Connections; the latter of which is the prequel to this novel in which Greg Ives embarks on an extended holiday travelling the length of Britain, encountering characters who are as helpful as they are colourful.
