Does anyone read Neil Ansell's journalism work? He's apparently a television journalist with the BBC (yes, that's probably evident to you, but remember I'm Ms. No TV Who Lives in the US) but has written for the Guardian, the New Statesman and the Big Issue.

He has a book coming out entitled Deep Country: Five Years in the Welsh Hills which sounds just up my alley; he lived in a place that was beyond remote with no electricity, etc. (And no, it should not surprise any of you who know me that I would find that appealing. Remember the eco-kitty litter yarn post. Yes, Lawlis, I'm not going to let you live down bumping that one.  Tongue  Wink)

However, I can find no excerpts or anything so I don't have a sense of his prose style. Does anyone else?

This is all I could find on Neil Ansell.  The Observer is an English newspaper so it is not something I read.

It sounds like an interesting book and if you have any problems getting it, let me know and I will send it to you  Grin

Thank you, Helen. (((hug)))

I read, I was intrigued, and I had to get the Little Guy one of his gifties from overseas as it's not published in the US (Rain and Fire--or is it Fire and Rain???--a "guide" to a dragon series by Chris D'Lacey which Little Guy adores), so...

Somehow, Deep Country was included on the order.  Still trying to work out how that happened.  Wink
