This Construction Life is the story of an Irishman born into the world of construction, living on the edge and making lemonade when things go wrong!
The experiences and adventures of a lifetime spent in the building industry in Ireland, London and Poland – the great, the bold, the fearless, the brazen and the despicable – based on true events in a life lived to the full.
For anyone interested in reading 20th century history, and fascinating real-life autobiographies, you will find Kathleen Copcutt’s memoir a real treat. At the age of 92 she recently released her book ‘Yer Never Knows Wot’s Anging ‘Til It Drops!’
Who knows that Joaquín Rodrigo, creator of the world-famous Concierto de Aranjuez, was also a writer of distinction?
The blind Spanish composer wrote articles and music criticism throughout his life, and these essays reveal Rodrigo’s insights, humour and eloquence in subjects ranging from Bach to Stravinsky, and from Sephardic songs to the history of Spanish guitar. There are also illuminating commentaries by Rodrigo on many of his own works.
