Over many years, Villager Jim has gained the trust of a number of special birds and animals who have gradually taken it as second nature that a member of their own small world is a large chap with a camera! Bobbin Robin and her friends have a huge social media audience, with tens of thousands of viewers following her weekly adventures from the RSPB and on Facebook. Bobbin the robin has now become rather adept at posing for Jim, perching on various platforms for wherever Jim sits in his garden. Open up the book to see the daily goings-on of these wildlife friends in some of Jim’s very best pictures taken in this beautiful setting. They illustrate the close relationship Jim has formed with Bobbin and her friends. Jim’s lively captions express the mood and spontaneous character of each individual shot and are an essential element of what makes his pictures so special.
The pioneering novelist and short story writer, Sherwood Anderson strongly influenced American writing in the Interwar period, producing works notable for their subjective and self-revealing content. His modernist prose style, based on everyday speech and derived from the experimental writing of Gertrude Stein, was markedly influential on Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner. Sadly, many of Anderson’s works have remained out of print for decades, in spite of his important place in the development of modernist literature.
