The Year of the Ladybird by Graham Joyce (Gollanz)
SKEGNESS is a holiday resort in Lincolnshire on the east coast of the UK which I visited many times as a child.
In the past it was a hugely popular seaside town, especially with working class visitors from the East Midlands.
But since the arrival of cut-price overseas holidays in the 70s ,it has suffered a decline and now looks rather faded and jaded.
Some Kind Of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce (Orion)
by Patrick O’Connor.
DO you believe in fairies?
Well, you might do after reading this enchanting novel by Graham Joyce which teasingly doesn’t quite fall into any genre.
