The life of John Wesley : a brand from the burning by Roy Hattersley ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 811 libraries worldwide
"Roy Hattersley follows Wesley's spiritual journey, tracing his constant, often agonizing attempts to define the nature of virtue as well as the path to sanctity. The story of Wesley's theological progress is vastly enriched by this revealing portrait of his complex personality. A genuine scholar, Wesley published more work than any other author of the eighteenth century. He possessed phenomenal energy, traveling huge distances to preach and proselytize. Wesley practiced, as Hattersley writes, "every form of personal discipline (diet, exercise, carefully planned day) except emotional restraint." This candid account of Wesley's relationships with women - falling desperately in love three times in his life, each time failing to make his intentions clear, and eventually ending up in a disastrous marriage - brings to life Wesley's human side, largely ignored in previous, reverential biographies."

He travels through the literary landscapes of Shakespeare, George Eliot and John Clare and reflects on Larkin and the poetry of Hull, discovers bell ringers in Somerset and truth-seekers on Glastonbury Tor, and salutes the hardy English seaside resort, before returning to his beloved Peak District.

Goodbye to Yorkshire by Roy Hattersley ( Book )
8 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in English and held by 140 libraries worldwide
The author was born in Yorkshire and spent his first thirty years in the county before leaving in 1964 to become the Member of Parliament for Sparkbrook. Yorkshire, he believes, is an idea as well as a place, representing as it does a set of particular values: the desire to compete and the need to win, a certainty about one's own virtues and scepticism about other people's convictions, a faith in the triumph of industy and the victory of thrift, aggression that gets men knocked down and pride that makes them stand up again. He here describes the places where he learnt the Yorkshire values, but this is not only about cities and rivers and towns - it is a tribute to great Yorkshire institutions.
