Literature: Bloor Book Success

5 January, 2015 in News

Go Swift and Far, the locally written and produced novel all about Bath, has already been reprinted following strong sales.

The book, which features real life Bath characters and is written by Gordon Bloor (under the pseudonym Douglas Westcott) is a coming-of-age tale set in the aftermath of the bombings of World War Two.

‘I’m thrilled that so many Bathonians have taken it to their heart,’ says the 71-year-old. ‘We’ve deliberately delayed Amazon sales until February, to allow a clear run for the great Bath outlets supporting us,’ he added. ‘At Bath Christmas market we sold 600 books in six days: that’s one bok every five minutes!’

‘Westcott has done it again, masterfully capturing the essence of magnificent Bath’

Jenny Lippett

‘Westcott burnishes his well won reputation as the  Grand Master of intrigue with this much anticipated sequel to acclaimed Go Swift and Far ; nothing less than brilliant as with the deft hand of an ancient god  he manoeuvres  the fate of the great and  less than good of Bath across the chess board of life. Check mate ; but who wins …..’

Patrick McCloy

Just finished reading your second book An Unfolding Soul which I have enjoyed as much as your first. As a Bathonian of 77 years I find it so scary and truthful as we currently experience The Third Destruction of Bath.

Malcolm Mitchell

‘Hard on the heels of ‘Go Swift and Far’ comes this hugely enjoyable sequel and another success for Westcott’
