    One thought on “How Much For A Little Screw?”

    1. I hate DIY with a vengeance – the Black and Decker power drill my best man gave me at my wedding 20 years ago is still sitting unopened in my shed – but I had no problem reading and laughing my head off about it in this wonderfully warm and funny account of a local hardware shop going under somewhere ‘opp north’ in Little Sniffingham. It’s a very topical story – the last shop like Graham’s in my native Kingston upon Thames was also forced out by unsympathetic banks, parking charges [...]

    2. This semi-autobiographical, humorous work by Yorkshire writer Graham Higson looks back to the end of an era for that almost extinct species, the local hardware shop. Peopled with a variety of oddball but mainly gentle characters, Graham’s 1990s world has flavours of the famous ‘Fork ‘andles’ sketch throughout and catalogues the struggles of an essential component of the British high street in its attempts to compete with the likes of Been & Queued and to cope with the fall-out from t [...]

    3. Amazing, fantastic, brilliant. FIVE STARS and then some!!!!I was asked to be a beta reader of this book and what a treat it was, I enjoyed it so much. I love the cover and the self portraits illustration-a nice touch and it all makes for an excellent presentation all-round. There is a nice, short, easy first scene. The book is split into chapters but there are also scene titles within. Yes, like my partner, if you work with DIY stuff, they think you want to do jobs for them all in your spare tim [...]

    4. I really enjoyed reading this very entertaining, and at times hilariously funny book, which chronicles the ups and downs of a high street hardware store and is full of anecdotes about the staff, customers, and the occasional shoplifter. I loved the dry Yorkshire humour and all the characters, particularly the MD who was reminiscent of one of James Herriot's wise and wily old farmers and has an uncanny way of predicting the future. 'Aye, well one day there'll be windmills all over the placee wind [...]

    5. I very much enjoyed this book describing the struggles of a city centre hardware store endeavouring to stay open and solvent. The shop is being slowly forced out of business as the huge DIY stores spring up in out of town retail parks where parking is free. The council are using underhand tactics to acquire the inner city land to build a multi storey car park. The Bank also conspires against them and calls in its loan and refusing to extend any help. The main characters are the MD who built the [...]

    6. Multi-layered and intriguing storyThis fictionalised memoir is based on some true stories and revolves around the survival of a high street hardware store.Initially sceptical I was soon drawn into the battles that the owners, staff and `The Accountant' go through to ensure that the shop does not go under.There are multiple layers to this book and it reflects so many aspects of our changing society, especially the greed and short-sightedness of banks and local councils.Graham's writing is superb [...]

    7. I spent quite a few years working in a DIY hardware store. It came about quite by accident, and seemed like a good idea at the time, and for over 10 years I wrote about some of my exploits in a magazine. Based on these articles How Much for a Little Screw?, a part-memoir, includes new tales and characters that I wasn't previously allowed to write about: the good customers, the bad ones, the staff, the fellow traders and our mistakes—oh, and not forgetting the omnipotent presence of the big boy [...]

    8. Ever wondered what it's like to run a small, independent hardware shop in a little town? Ever thought about what challenges that would throw up? Like when the main competitor is an absolute idiot and the council is intent on ruining what little trade there might be? The look no further than this book.Anecdotes that are all amusing with a strong plot that takes you through the banks vying for your head and the changing demands of the high street. Characters who are real and interesting. A great r [...]
