Grandville

Posted by Notcot on Dec 21, 2012 in Steampunk
Grandville

Bryan Talbot’s most recent book, “Alice in Sunderland”, was hailed by the “Guardian” as one of the ten best graphic novels ever and acclaimed by critics all over the world. Before that, at the start of his career, he created the first ever steampunk graphic novel, “The Adventures of Luther Arkwright”. In “Grandville” Talbot brings us another steampunk masterpiece. Inspired by the work of the nineteenth-century French illustrator Gerard, who worked under the pseudonym ‘Grandville’ and frequently drew anthropomorphic animal characters, it tells the story of detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard as he stalks a gang of murderers through the heart of Belle Epoque Paris. In this alternative reality France is the major world power and its capital is thronged with steam-driven hansom cabs, automatons and flying machines. The characters are mostly animals, though there is an underclass of humans, often referred to as ‘dough faces’, who resemble the ‘clear-line’ characters of Herge’s “Tintin” books. Visually stunning, “Grandville” is a fantastical and audacious rollercoaster ride that will add to Talbot’s reputation as one of the best graphic novelists in the world.

Price : £ 12.74

Back from the Brink

Posted by Notcot on Jul 27, 2012 in Cult Film
Back from the Brink

Paul McGrath is Ireland’s best loved sportsman and also its least understood. An iconic football presence during a professional career stretching over 14 years he played for his country in the European Championship finals of 1988 and the World Cup finals of 1990 and 1994. But behind the implied glamour of life in the employ of great English clubs like Manchester United and Aston Villa McGrath wrestled with a range of destructive emotions that made his success in the game little short of miraculous. That story has until now never been told. It is a story that runs from a hard hidden childhood spent in Dublin’s orphanages all the way to the pain of two marriage break-ups and the struggle to cope with life after football. Quite apart from his all too public struggle with alcoholism the story runs through the surreal highs and calamitous lows of a life lived habitually on the edge of chaos. It is not just a football story. It is an extraordinary human story that is certain to surprise with its candour.Here for the first time read about the father he never met; the mother whose love never died; the routine loneliness and ritual bullying endured by a black kid growing up behind closed doors in 1960s Dublin; the emotional breakdown suffered on leaving that institution; the recovery that – remarkably – brought him all the way to Old Trafford; the rollercoaster ride that followed. Here the guilt fear self-loathing are all laid bare in a story fired with hope and determination for the future. It may well be the most candid sports book ever written.
