The Joy of Small Things

The Joy of Small Things

£10.00

Hannah Jane Parkinson is a specialist in savouring the small pleasures of life. Whether she is revelling in a fluffy dressing gown (‘like bathing in marshmallow’), finding calm in solo cinema trips, noticing the personalities of fonts (‘you’ll never see Comic Sans on a funeral notice’), celebrating the pocket, or feeling no guilt calling time on a book she isn’t enjoying. Parkinson’s funny and tender observations – selected from her immensely successful Guardian column – remind us of the everyday pleasures life has to offer. This book is a balm for anyone having an unsteady time.
