Uncle TrevAbout the book

An eccentric great-uncle, a story-telling grandfather, and unconsciously story-telling mother, various yarn-spinning deer-cullers, fishermen, boozers in pubs and priests in pulpits all helped give birth to Uncle Trev, who has already appeared in various publications and broadcasts. This is his first collection.

Storylines award for much loved book for 2012.
