Right it's agreed that the deal will be £9.60 including postage.

You can get it by going here:

http://shop2.actinicexpress.com/shops/K ... /index.php

and scrolling all the way to the bottom where it says WITHNAIL FORUM OFFER!

If you want to contact the publisher (for freebies etc) you can email him: Steve@kingsengland.com

I will post it all in a new thread along with my review as soon as I've read it.

The overview of the book


The cult film Withnail and I continues to fascinate and intrigue, twenty years and more after its first low-key release in the eighties.
Withnail and the Romantic Imagination: a Eulogy examines the film as both a serious work of art and a cultural phenomenon.

The central characters - Withnail, Marwood, Monty and Danny - are analysed in detail and related to the career changing performances of actors Richard E Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown, as well as to their own cultural hinterland, situated as they are in September 1969 at the end of the greatest decade in the history of mankind.

Generations not yet born when Withnail and I was made continue to be recruited into the "cult" of the film's devotees. There are pilgrimages to the film's central location, a derelict building in Cumbria, where passages from the screenplay are recited and inscribed on the security fencing. Records of these ceremonies are uploaded into cyberspace.

Words, music, and visual beauty are all important in the film. Author Maisie Robson gives a close reading of the filmic text and screenplay, explaining how the film works its magic. The contribution made by the soundtrack music is celebrated by Steve Rudd, and there are haunting location shots of the Lake District countryside by Mal Greenley.

Withnail and the Romantic Imagination: a Eulogy is for readers interested in critical approaches to popular culture, as well as those hardcore fans, like the book's author, who want to understand the power of this curious film. Will we never be set free?

The new Withnail book seems to have been reviewed in today's issue of the Hull Daily Mail. I don't live in Hull so I can't get the paper but there is part of the review on their website and the URL is as follows:

www.thisishullandeastriding.co.uk/enter ... ews/Reader ... article.html

The internet still seems like witchcraft to me, so I might have got the link wrong but if it doesn't work, I daresay Crooked, as Chief Wizard, will know what to do.
