Seashaken Houses
Seashaken Houses by Tom Nancollas (Penguin, 2018)

This fascinating book about eight of Britain’s most famous lighthouses is one of the most interesting non-fiction books I’ve read recently. Nancollas takes us from Eddystone to Fastnet, via the Bell Rock, Wolf Rock and four more. Lyrically written, with a strong narrative flow, this book reveals so much not just about the importance of the lighthouses but the bravery of the men who constructed them.
