Book Tour | All The Fun Of The Fair

It’s the 1950s and Grundy’s Travelling Fair arrives in town with a bang.

When night falls, the local town is drawn to the Fair. But when the fairgoers head home, the Grundys are left behind. Hours are long and the work back-breaking. But family and friends hold things together.

Gemma married into the lifestyle, her reliable husband Solomon making the work worthwhile. Solly’s Dad Samson is still the boss, but his other son, known as Sonny, is getting a reputation...

Times are changing. Can the family – and the fair – survive?

Based on a travelling fairground, All The Fun Of The Fair offers a unique and intrinsic view into the 'real' world behind the scenes.

The close knit family of the Grundys work tirelessly to bring the local town a show, even when they need to intervene into the lives of their guests through acts of morality. 

All The Fun Of The Fair has a well set introduction to the characters of the show, perhaps a little longer than I'd usually like but very well written. Getting up close to the Grundy family the cracks begin to show from the long, endless seeming, shifts and the toll it takes on family life. 

There's no subplot which particularly stood out for me but all the tales from the family members came together perfectly to create one heartfelt and breathtaking story. 

All The Fun Of The Fair is a great new publication after Page's last release, and hopefully it's the beginning of a new series of the Grundy family.
