BOOKWORMS by Lewis Cook

Great stories are all about great characters. Virtuous. Courageous. Heroic.

Mel and Vic are not those characters.

They're the people you don't notice in novels, the guys in the background. They're next door to Sherlock Holmes. They're fare-dodgers on the Orient Express. They're Christian Grey's cleaners. And now it's time to hear their stories!

Each episode, we join Mel and Vic inside the world of a different novel. Join us for the very first two episodes!

EPISODE 1: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

EPISODE 2: 1984

VAN LIFE by Rhys Williamson

Van Life - an American craze whose proponents live nomadically out of their camper-vans on the hunt for a more meaningful and adventurous life, documented through the sepia tones of Instagram and supported by surreptitious brand endorsements.

Failing artist Ellie persuades her previously-sensible boyfriend Chris to sell up and pursue the Van Life dream in the most exotic place they can afford: Cornwall.

Faced with the prospect of having to find branding opportunities to survive they battle the elements and the locals in the pursuit of their dream of a less run of the mill existence.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
