Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter. Damaged book. Please note this is a damaged book. The condition of this book is as stated above, however this book is slightly damaged in some way. Typically a grazed corner or torn cover. Thanks.

Product description

Review

‘Captivatingly original…a wonderful feat of story-telling, remarkable for its ability to wrench your heart without resorting to sentimentality.’ Daily Mail

‘“The Elephant Keeper” evokes 18th-century village and estate life beautifully, and is stuffed with fascinating data from medical and veterinary history.’ Independent

‘Charming and courageous’ Sunday Express

‘This charming first novel, told in Tom's tender, somewhat melancholic voice, is an account of this unusual relationship.’ Independent on Sunday

‘Like the elephant at its centre, Nicholson’s book is gentle, profound and sweet-natured.’ Observer

‘A pleasingly ambling tale’ FT

About the Author

Christopher Nicholson read English at Cambridge University. He has been a community development worker in Cornwall, and a radio scriptwriter and producer in London. He lives in Dorset. ‘The Elephant Keeper’ is his second novel.
