Mr Nicholas is a devastating study of the domestic horrors of English suburbia, personified by the Nicholas family and its snobbish patriarch, a petty tyrant whose greatest pleasure is to sip gin while bullying and arguing with his beleaguered wife and three sons, 'intellectual, ineffectual' Peter, rebellious Owen, and young David, whose relationship with a retired Army captain threatens to bring scandal on the family. With wry humour and surgically precise prose, Thomas Hinde paints an unforgettable portrait of an everyday monster, a character who is contemptible, yet curiously sympathetic. Thomas Hinde (1926-2014) burst onto the literary scene at age 26 with his first novel, Mr Nicholas (1952), which was widely acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic and hailed as one of the finest English novels of its day. This new edition, the first in over 35 years, includes a new introduction by Alice Ferrebe and a reproduction of the original jacket art by Peter Curl. Hinde's classic thriller of suburban paranoia, The Day the Call Came (1964), is also available from Valancourt

"With their village under threat from a horrendous new motorway, twenty local residents meet to plan the defence. The trouble is they can't agree on a solution. Seventy-year-old Lorna Furnival views what follows with a mixture of amusement and despair, including a hippy protest and a visit from the local MP. The risk of destruction leads to long suppressed lusts and loves being exposed whilst the planned closure of the village school gives the schoolmistress a nervous breakdown. But does she hold the key to their salvation?"--Publisher's description

"No city in Britain has a history like Bath's. Others have exploited their mineral waters ... and many have been holiday resorts. But none has ever been the country's alternative capital as Bath was for almost a hundred years, a place to which a large part of society came annually and just about everyone who was anybody visited at least once : from writers and artists such as Samuel Pepys, William Beckford, Thomas Gainsborough, Henry Fielding and Fanny Burney to actors and playwrights like Mrs. Siddons and Richard Brinsley Sheridan. James II's Queen to a bath in order to become pregnant ; lesser bathers hoped to cure gout or pox. Eventually most were found at the Pump Room, the heart of Bath's social scene. There over glasses of the celebrated mineral water, gossip was exchanged and duels or elopements arranged. Thomas Hinde describes the most curious, amusing and scandalous personalities and events with made this such a unique community in the eighteenth century and which still makes Bath such a popular city today."--Back over
