Panic as Man Burns Crumpets: The Vanishing World of the Local Journalist (Hardback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'For those who know about provincial newspapers, this will be a classic and a gem. Those who don't know will envy what they have missed'

MELVYN BRAGG



You dreamed of being a journalist and the dream has come true. You love working for your local paper . . . although not everything is as you imagined.



You embarrass yourself with a range of celebrities, from John Hurt to Jordan. Your best story is 'The Man with the Pigeon Tattoo'.



A former colleague interviews President Trump. You urinate in the president of the Mothers' Union's garden.



There are serious stories, such as a mass shooting, a devastating flood, and the search for Madeleine McCann.



Meanwhile local papers are dying. Your building is crumbling, your readership is dwindling and your carefully crafted features are read by fewer people than a story about fancy dress for dogs.



Panic as Man Burns Crumpets is the inside story of local newspapers during the past twenty-five years, told in a way that's funny, poignant and very revealing.
