New Review from The Guardian

" all the above quotes amply demonstrate, the book is also worth reading simply because of the excellence of its prose. It enables even those who – like me – prefer to use the stairs to get to the top of buildings to experience some of the vertiginous pleasure of night climbing; the serene beauty of a moonlit ascent of Kings College chapel, the joy of mastering a well-secured drainpipe, and the wonder of watching the dawn rise over the roofs of Cambridge. It is, in short, a book as wonderful as it is weird" Read the whole piece here.

4500 Celebration

Just to let you know that to celebrate the sale of the 4500th copy of our favourite book - without a chain bookstore I may add - Oleander has a May discount of 20% going on so pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and head on over for a cheap copy of NCoC. Still, I reckon if a chain did take it on we'd be looking at 45,000 soon enough.
