Through nigh-on forty years of laconic brilliance on Radio 1, a musical taste which defined a culture and his wildly popular Radio 4 show, Home Truths, John Peel reached out to an audience that was as diverse as his record collection. He was a genuinely great Briton, beloved by millions. John's unique voice and sensibility were evident in everything he did, and nowhere is that more true than in these pages. Margrave of the Marshes is the astonishing book John Peel began to write before his untimely death in October 2004, completed by the woman who knew him best, his wife Sheila. It is a unique and intimate portrait of a life, a marriage and a family which is every bit as extraordinary as the man himself - a fitting tribute to a bona fide legend.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pure Peel...This magnificent book is the real thing...Essential reading" * Sunday Times *
"As with the man himself ... there's the surprising, the cosy ... and the fascinating." * GQ *
"A rich and technicolor life... The joy of this book comes from something more than spiky anecdotage, delicious though it is... the evocation of an age is so sharp" * The Times *
"... Tender and acute ... underlines the one truth that Peel understood better than anyone ... [what] really mattered was the music." * Independent on Sunday *
"Sparkling with the warmth and dry wit that made Peel nothing short of a national treasure, it's a timely reminder of a man who crossed the radio divides" * Daily Mail *
