SIGNOR ROY

Recently, I decided to go back to my writing, and stop publishing. But... I couldn't resist re-publishing Roy MacGregor Hastie's SIGNOR ROY. It took four years to get together the finances and carefully re-edit the book, for a paperback edition, £9.95 (UK post-free to my Personal Customers).

All kinds of local, national and international connections support my brother's book.

Local: I was asked to prepare a flyer to be distributed when Arundel Co-op opened, after refurbishment in February 2016. More than 200 copies flew (sorry!) out, and it was posted on Facebook, with the front-cover image. 

National and International: The Co-operative News, distributed in print and on their website, all over the world, has already mentioned the coming of the book, and a major illustrated review appeared in their 23 August 2016 issue. An Italian edition is currently being prepared by Alasdhair MacGregor Hastie, my brother’s eldest son, and my Godson and nephew.

SIGNOR ROY is a fascinating story. As a respected journalist and commentator on international affairs, Roy writes on significant political and social history of the time (not just in Italy), some of which has remarkable implications today! Roy's determined efforts to bring prosperity to 'his' peasants (which he did!) is lightened in the text by very amusing interludes.
