Charming English country tales in the tradition of James Herriot This is a warm, funny and mostly true account of the first year that Gervase Phinn spent as a schools' inspector in North Yorkshire. His brilliantly portrayed cast includes his fellow inspectors who range from endearing to eccentric, sporting lords of the manor, Ministry bigwigs, formidable teaching nuns and a very attractive head-teacher who happens to be single, adding up to an enchanting montage of experiences. But it is the children themselves who steal the show, whether fresh-faced from the farms or worldly-wise from the towns. Gervase Phinn is a born raconteur who has transferred his talents to the written word with outstanding success. The Other Side of the Dale Phinn, Gervase, Penguin Global

Details of the book
The Other Side of the Dale

A warm, funny and mostly true account of the author's first year as a School Inspector in North Yorkshire, featuring a brilliantly portrayed cast of eccentrics, Ministry bigwigs, teaching nuns and the children themselves, who, whether from remote farms or industrial towns, steal the show. A surprise success in hardback, fame has brought several appearances on Esther Rantzen's TV shows and the promise of a second volume, "Over Hill And Dale", in Spring 2000. A Penguin Audiobook edition, read by the author, is also published this month.
