The Part-Time Job

release date: Jul 21, 2020
The Part-Time Job
"I wasn't in any particular hurry to kill him. What was important was to make sure that the deed was done without suspicion settling on me." Follow the long-beloved Queen of Crime, P. D. James, as she takes us into the mind of a man who has waited decades to enact his patient, ingenious revenge on a school bully. A small, dark treat, The Part-Time Job is published in this special ebook edition in celebration of what would have been P. D. James' 100th birthday on August 3rd, 2020.

Speaking of Faith

release date: Dec 08, 2016
Speaking of Faith
A range of distinguished contributors from the media, journalism, the arts, politics and the church speak candidly and engagingly about their understanding and experience of faith, its impact on them and their work, and its place in public life. In one of her last public engagements before her death, PD James recalls how influential the language of Anglicanism was in shaping her as a writer. Jon Snow, a former cathedral chorister, reveals what goes through your mind when interviewing tyrants. Douglas Hurd reflects on the sometimes conflicted experience of faith in the public arena. John Simpson discloses what keeps you going when reporting on war from the front line. Rowan Williams gives a flavour of the sheer number of polarized opinions that an Archbishop of Canterbury has to try to manage at any one time. These and other well-known figures offer fascinating insights into living in the public eye as a person of faith. All royalties from the sale of this book will be given to the Winchester Cathedral Appeal.
