The Daily Telegraph Style Guide

Simon Heffer

The Daily Telegraph Style Guide by Simon Heffer

The Telegraph newspapers maintain their high standards of accuracy, literacy and grammar thanks to a comprehensive style book used by all their journalists, covering everything from the correct title of a baron to the spelling of Gorden Kaye's Christian name when writing about Allo, Allo. But its rigour and exactitude are complemented by a deliciously baleful, even testy, wit – a quality much valued by, and indeed demonstrated by, its own readership in Aurum's hugely successful Unpublished Letters book of Christmas 2009, Am I Alone in Thinking...?

As a result this style guide is a uniquely enjoyable...

Tunnelling to Freedom: The Story of the World's Most Persistent Escaper

John Fancy

Tunnelling to Freedom: The Story of the World's Most Persistent Escaper by John FancyJohn Fancy, who died in September 2008, aged 95, was the most prolific escaper of the Second World War. Nicknamed 'the Mole' he dug eight tunnels at the various camps in which he was held, in East Prussia, Poland and Germany. Some were 40 feet below the surface and only 2 feet square. He escaped three times, only to be recaptured. His escape activities landed him in solitary confinement for a total of 34 weeks - one eighth of his time in detention. Whilst imprisoned at Stalag Luft III in Poland, in 1942, he helped to plot the breakout of 76 men that later became known as the Great Escape, and...

The Lost World of Bletchley Park: An illustrated History of the Wartime Codebreaking Centre

Sinclair McKay

The Lost World of Bletchley Park: An illustrated History of the Wartime Codebreaking Centre by Sinclair McKayThe huge success of Sinclair's The Secret Life of Bletchley Park - a quarter of a million copies sold to date - has been symptomatic of a similarly dramatic increase in visitors to Bletchley Park itself, the Victorian mansion in Buckinghamshire now open as an engrossing museum of wartime codebreaking. Aurum is publishing the first comprehensive illustrated history of this remarkable place, from its prewar heyday as a country estate under the Liberal MP Sir Herbert Leon, through its wartime requisition with the addition of the famous huts within the grounds, from the place where modern computing...

Feet in the Clouds: A Tale of Fell-Running and Obsession

Richard Askwith

Feet in the Clouds: A Tale of Fell-Running and Obsession by Richard Askwith

Nearly 10 years after its first publication, Aurum are re-issuing this classic running book which has defined a genre. It includes an introduction from bestselling author Robert Macfarlane and an epilogue from Richard Askwith.
The concept of fell-running is simple: it's a sport that involves running over mountains – sometimes one, sometimes many. It's also immensely demanding. While running uphill is a stamina-sapping slog, running pell-mell down the other side requires the agility – and even recklessness – of a mountain goat. And there's the weather to contend with.
It may make the sports pages...

Stones Touring Party: A Journey Through America with the Rolling Stones

Robert Greenfield

Stones Touring Party: A Journey Through America with the Rolling Stones by Robert Greenfield

'A compelling account of the Stones trashing America during 1972... Greenfield was allowed the kind of access journalists can only dream of today' The Times

The Stones' 1972 tour of the States was perhaps their best – and certainly most notorious – ever. Their previous visit in 1969 had ended in the nightmare of Altamont; now, three years later, they had just recorded their two finest albums, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street, and were musically in their prime – if also personally at their most dissolute and debauched.
Robert Greenfield, one of America's finest writers, went along for the...

Arlott: The Authorised Biography

David Rayvern Allen

Arlott: The Authorised Biography by David Rayvern AllenJohn Arlott's rich Hampshire burr was the voice of BBC cricket commentary for many years, from the great Test match radio broadcasts of the fifties to bucolic Sunday League on the television in the seventies. But he was also a distinguished journalist for the Guardian, a Liberal parliamentary candidate, a courageous opponent of apartheid in sport from the earliest opportunity, and a connoisseur - and imbiber - of fine wine without equal. David Rayvem Allen's definitive biography was acclaimed on its first publication and won the Cricket Society's award for Cricket Book of the Year. Now reissued...

The Duchesses: The Story of Britain's Ultimate Steam Locomotives

Andrew Roden

The Duchesses: The Story of Britain's Ultimate Steam Locomotives by Andrew RodenThe Duchesses tells the story of the 'Princess Coronation' class of locomotives -the streamlined embodiments of raw, bulked-up muscle and formidable power that any enthusiast will tell you were the finest steam engines in Britain. Conceived of by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway to rival the LNER's illustrious 'A4 Pacifics', these trains heralded in the last golden age of steam. Designed by the great William Stanier, theirs is a story of grand beginnings, a slow trajectory of decline and a recent, celebrated rebirth. Today, there are two 'Duchesses' still in existence: Duchess of Hamilton...

Game for Anything

Gideon Haigh

Game for Anything by Gideon Haigh

There are profiles of players past and present - Bradman, Ranjitsinhji, Benaud and Sobers from the past, Steve Waugh, Shane Warne and Wasim Akram from the present. He covers the big issues in the game: sledging, match-fixing, Kerry Packer, Zimbabwe, umpiring. He writes about cricket's best writers - Swanton, C.L.R. James - and ponders the game's most halcyon and unique aspects: slow bowling, captaincy, the essence of good batting. Haigh has now established himself...

Kings of the Saddle: Ireland's Greatest Jockeys

Brian O'Connor

Kings of the Saddle: Ireland's Greatest Jockeys by Brian O'ConnorThe recent retirement of Mick Kinane, doyen of flat racing jockeys whose swansong was his 2009 Classic victories on the great Sea the Stars, reminded us once again how many of the greatest jockeys in racing, over jumps as well as on the flat, hail from Ireland. Brian O'Connor is the experienced racing correspondent of the Irish Times, and his survey of the twelve finest jockeys currently riding in Ireland (six on the flat, six National Hunt) was acclaimed in hardback by both the racing press and the Irish media. He interviewed most of the featured jockeys specially for the book, and provides...

Am I Missing Something...: Unpublished Letters from the Daily Telegraph

Am I Missing Something...: Unpublished Letters from the Daily Telegraph by Iain HollingsheadEvery year, the collection of the best letters that didn't quite make it into the Telegraph - because just too left-field, outrageous or hilarious for an august Letters page - offers an alternative review of the year. For this fifth volume the potential agenda is just as enticing as ever, with Telegraph readers variously waggish, whimsical or just plain steamed-up about Chris Huhne's speeding points, a new Pope, the Royal baby and mansion taxes. Once again, it will be one of the humour bestsellers of the year.

The Telegraph Book of the Ashes 2013 by The Daily TelegraphThis summer's Ashes was another unforgettable instalment in the oldest and greatest rivalry in international sport. From the thrilling denouement at Trent Bridge, when Australia came within 19 runs of an incredible victory, to the stunning spell of hostile fast bowling from Stuart Broad in Durham and England's frantic run-chase in the gloom at the Oval in pursuit of an historic 4-0 series victory, the series was never less than engrossing.

And - as always in an Ashes summer - there was as much intrigue off the field. David Warner made himself the English public's favourite pantomime villain by...

It's about disappearing into a new, unofficial, global army of cultural babies. It says: I eat hamburgers and watch TV and chew gum all day, I want everyone to play my game, You have to be nice to me and if you're not I'm gonna shoot you, I can't understand a word you say... and what is that but American foreign policy?' Todd McEwen left the United States in 1980, but it's still driving him crazy. He worries about cheeseburgers, Cary Grant, Henry David Thoreau, democracy,...

Anti-Ugly: Excursions in English Architecture and Design

Gavin Stamp

Anti-Ugly: Excursions in English Architecture and Design by Gavin StampSince 2004 Gavin Stamp, one of Britain's most eminent and readable architectural historians, has written a monthly column for Apollo, the esteemed architecture and fine art magazine. The subject is simply whatever in design or architecture happens to take his fancy. It might be the splendid reopening of the magnificent Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, or the dilapidation of a little-known church in Eastbourne, the much-lamented demise of the original Routemaster bus, or the colossal majesty of the airship sheds that housed the R.101.

Killa: The Autobiography of Kevin Kilbane by Kevin Kilbane & Andy MerrimanKevin Kilbane is Ireland's third most capped player of all time, with 110 appearances for his country, including an incredible 66 consecutive matches.

He played more than 600 matches at professional level, and in Ireland is nothing less than a folk hero. But things could have been very different. Kilbane grew up the hard way, enduring a tough Lancashire childhood with his Irish immigrant family. It was only his prowess on the pitch, and subsequent signing with his childhood club Preston North End, that gave him the opportunity to escape poverty. Kilbane has since built a formidable reputation...

Magic Words: The Extraordinary Life of Alan Moore

Lance Parkin

Magic Words: The Extraordinary Life of Alan Moore by Lance ParkinFor over three decades comics fans and creators have regarded Alan Moore as a titan of the form. With works such as V for Vendetta, Watchmen and From Hell, he has repeatedly staked out new territory, attracting literary plaudits and a mainstream audience far removed from his underground origins. His place in popular culture is now such that major Hollywood players vie to adapt his books for cinema.
Yet Moore's journey from the hippie Arts Labs of the 1970s to the bestseller lists was far from preordained. A principled eccentric, who has lived his whole life in one English town, he has been embroiled...

Of Rhubarb and Roses: The Telegraph Book of the Garden by Tim RichardsonThe Telegraph has long enjoyed the closest association with gardeners, ever since Vita Sackville-West first began writing a column for the paper between the wars, while creating her legendary White Garden at Sissinghurst. Indeed, as the newspaper of choice for the counties and the shires, rather than the metropolis, it has always revelled in the glory and variety of Britain's horticultural heritage, whether celebrating the most prized formal gardens, like Great Dixter, or offering sage advice on pruning penstemon from the pages of the Weekend section. For gardening spans a vast spectrum. Variously...

Mystery Spinner: The Life and Death of an Extraordinary Cricketer

Gideon Haigh

Mystery Spinner: The Life and Death of an Extraordinary Cricketer by Gideon Haigh

It is no mystery that today the name of Jack Iverson is virtually unknown. For most of his life he was an unexceptional estate agent in Australia. He died in obscurity, by his own hand, at the age of only 58. He was a clumsy fielder, and a hopeless batsman. But for four years he was the best spin bowler in the world.

The story of Jack Iverson is one of the most remarkable in the history of cricket. 'Every now and then,' wrote one journalist, 'there comes a man who can do the right thing the wrong way round.' Iverson took up cricket, at the advanced age of 31, as capriciously as he left it – joining...

Ben Hogan: The Authorised Biography by James Dodson

Ben Hogan is up with Jack Nicklaus as one of the greatest golfers of all time. He equalled the record of four US Open wins, once won five out of six major tournaments in one season, and is credited with effectively defining the modern game of golf. James Dodson's magisterial biography, written by the bestselling author of Final Rounds, is the first to be authorised by Hogan's family, and reveals the complex character behind a golfer legendary for his inscrutable, steely public persona.

Dodson shows how the dauntless determination that saw Hogan to four US Open victories masked a man ever haunted...
