What Martin Browning cannot know, however, is that his search for the elusive Catherine will lead him first to Valencia and ultimately into the wilds of South America; that it will take him into the company of rich people and poor, zombies, businessmen, cyclists, dogs, electric whores, an astrologer doubling as a werewolf and a deranged midget who is also a magistrate, as well as unreal people of various kinds; or that at its end, in the remote snow-filled Anderson Valley, he will learn from the clean-smelling angelic messenger perhaps sent to him by his wife that it is no bad thing to be unreal.”Notes: Jacket designed by Linda Garland.

The Agony & the Ecstasy: Stephen Roche's World of Cycling by Stephen Roche with David Walsh (£15.50)Publisher: Stanley Paul — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091736846]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper heavily tanned at the join of the rear panel. Leans slightly. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Stephen Roche during the 1987 Tour de France. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “On the morning after Stephen Roche became cycling champion of the world, a French newspaper wrote: We sought a successor to Bernard Hinault but, instead, we found a new Eddy Merckx. In winning the Giro d’ltalia, Tour de France and World Championship in 1987, Roche entered the Merckx class as only the second cyclist to win the sport’s three great prizes in the same season. The achievement will ensure a permanent place for Roche in cycling’s heroic history — but what the history books will not record are the struggles, conflicts, sufferings and satisfaction that lay behind the dedicated Irishman’s great victories.

The Agony & the Ecstasy is the story of the making of a champion, from his boyhood on the Dublin streets where his passion for cycling was born and fostered by his father, through the gruelling years of trying to prove he had the talent everyone said he had. The book follows Roche’s growth from home-town Dublin boy into a young European, famous in every city where cycling is a major sport, and the astonishing series of wins in 1987 that were to make him a sporting legend. The Agony & the Ecstasy takes us behind the scenes of triumph and into the mysterious world of cycling to show us what life for top professionals is really like: the roads, the races and the riders themselves — how they live and train; the battles with the elements on the great marathons; the crowds and their role in morale; the dangers of the sport, and the elation or despair when the finish line is reached.

Stephen Roche, one of the most likeable world champions in any sport, is articulate, perceptive and often controversial. Together with journalist David Walsh he has produced a fascinating, thought-provoking book about his own route to the summit, and an illuminating in-depth study of his sport.”

1988 Tour de France by Phil Liggett (£9.50)Publisher: Harrap — 1988Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0245547274]Condition: Very Good.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The Tour de France is the most challenging competition of the sporting world, a gruelling test of endurance against the elements, the other competitors, and, indeed, for the rider himself- a race so demanding that since its inception in 1903, less than half the cyclists starting out have ever made it to the finish.

Phil Liggett, Channel Four’s Tour commentator and cycling correspondent of the Daily Telegraph — and a former racing cyclist himself — draws on his unique experience to write this entertaining and accessible armchair viewer’s guide. He traces the Tour from its creation to the present day, looking at the legendary riders of the past, and examining the Tour’s changing physical and mental demands. He describes the rise of the English-speaking cyclists — Greg LeMond, Robert Millar, Sean Kelly and Stephen Roche — and, finally, he discusses the challengers of the 1988 Tour. Lavishly illustrated with superb action photographs, diagrams and maps, and with a foreword by Sean Kelly, the 1988 Tour de France is the essential guide to this spectacular race.”

Every Second Counts by Lance Armstrong with Sally Jenkins (£9.50)Publisher: Yellow Jersey Press — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0224064665]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: From the cover: “In Paris on 25 July 1999, Lance Armstrong made world headlines with the most stunning comeback in the history of sport, winning the Tour de France in the fastest ever time after battling against life-threatening testicular cancer just eighteen months previously. A few months after that historic victory, he became a father for the first time. His first book, It’s Not About the Bike, charted his journey back to life and went on to become an international bestseller, and to win the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2000.

Now, in this much-anticipated follow-up, Armstrong shares more details of his remarkable life story, including four more Tour de France wins, an Olympic medal, and the births of his twin daughters Grace and Isabelle. Never shy of controversy, Lance Armstrong is a genuine global sports superstar and one of cycling’s greatest ever champions. Here he offers us his life philosophy — his thoughts on training, competing, winning and failure. He also recounts the work done for the Foundation he set up following his dramatic recovery and introduces further inspirational tales of cancer survival.

Every Second Counts is another extraordinary and awe-inspiring book from a man who strives every day to meet life’s momentous challenges.”

From the cover: “The institution of Afternoon Tea has long distinguished the British way of life from any other, but the days when everything stopped for tea are over. Nowadays most of us are reduced to treating ourselves on holiday or after retirement at the Tea Rooms dotted around the country. This handbook will point die thirsty, whether tourists or weary shoppers, to the nearest stop for refreshment. Whether well-known or obscure, there are tea shops for all tastes, catering for children, cyclists and walkers, smokers and non-smokers, whole coach parties and even those with special diets.

Margaret Thornby has collected details of over 350 Tea Rooms, covering England, Scotland and Wales. Regular menus and specialities with lists of the teas available whet the appetite, whilst unusual features from ghosts to chandeliers decorate die descriptions along with a smattering of poetry and some traditional recipes to try out if you dare.”Notes: Size: 7¼" x 4¾". 204 pages.
