Arnold Bennett in Cyprus

Books in a Turkish Cypriot bookshop

As regular readers know, I do like unexpected references to home whenever I leave Staffordshire.

In a Turkish Cypriot bookshop (in Nicosia actually), I was looking for a book in English to read - but in vain.  Then suddenly I spotted 'The Old Wives Tale' by Arnold Bennett - a tale of Staffordshire people by a Staffordshire writer...!

By coincidence, there's a major exhibition soon all about Arnold Bennett.  In north Staffordshire of course.  Not Cyprus.
