The Kates Hill Press is proud to announce that two new titles are now available.
The first is A Bundle of Rags by Len Webster. This is the second of Len’s works in our catalogue, following on from Lone Wolf, published several years ago. A Bundle of Rags tells the story of Ten-year-old, Jimmy Willson claims to be the youngest rag and bone merchant in town. And when a rug with a strange design is given to him by a lonely old lady he recognises it as a very valuable piece of work. Finding out just how valuable is only one of Jimmy’s many problems during a hectic fortnight in which he learns more about other people and about himself. For this is the fortnight when Jimmy Willson really grows up… Set near Birmingham in the Black Country of the late-1950s, A Bundle of Rags is a moving story of how a young boy comes to terms with his world. A Bundle of Rags is written in the tradition of working class writers such as Stan Barstow, John Braine, Barry Hines and Alan Sillitoe.
The second is History of Holy Trinity Parish Church Old Hill 1876-2018 by Edward Chitham and Jackie Kendall. Apart from being our longest ever title, it is also the first publication to include colour photographs. This lovingly told work tells the story of Holy Trinity portraying its roll in a thriving community from its founding in 1876 to the present day.
