Description

Blackwell’s Bookshop and Comely Banks Publishing are delighted to invite you to the launch of Assured Attention, the much anticipated follow-up to 2016’s bestselling Our Best Attention.

About the Book

“Assuring you of our best attention” at all times has been the watchword at Murrays department store of distinction for more than a hundred years. Despite a changing retail world it still strives to fulfil this commitment. The store itself remains a beautiful, inconvenient and theatrical place. Murrays is largely defined by its staff and customers: their dramas, comedies and tragedies large and small mark each working day.

This book begins and ends at the annual garden party for the staff. Miss Margaret Murray, its owner and managing director is keen to thank the staff for their hard work as the store moves inexorably into the 1980s. Not all is as it seems, however, and Miss Murray has a surprise for her dedicated team. We meet some new faces, catch up with some more familiar ones and one awkward customer gets his come-uppance in some style.

Take a deep breath, let’s go inside…

About the Author
Jane Tulloch was born in Edinburgh in 1954 and has lived there ever since. Under her professional name however, she has travelled widely mostly in relation to her day job working with adults with autism. These travels have taken her to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Bangladesh, South Africa and various points in between. She writes for relaxation from her work in this demanding but fascinating field. She has worked for the NHS for 30 years but before this worked in a large department store which provided the inspiration for the Murrays series of books.
