Strong Words

Strong Words Issue 30

Strong Words was launched in 2018 by Ed Needham, the multi-award winning former editor of various magazines including Rolling Stone.  It’s for people who love books, love reading about them, and need an entertaining, useful and reliable source of suggestions as to what to read next.

Published nine times a year, it covers new fiction and non-fiction in depth, including biographies and memoirs, history, photography, graphic novels and cookbooks. There are over 100 titles in every issue. It has developed a fanatical following who can’t get enough of its witty enthusiasm and its utter refusal to admit blurb, cliché and academic jargon. Strong Words is the magazine that leaves every reader saying, “That’s the book for me.”


Inside issue 30:

Non fictions reviews include a Frank Sinatra biography about his life 'in the wee small hours,' three books that explore the darker side of success for the likes of Freddie Mercury and Shirley Temple and true crime books like the new Jeffrey Epstein book by Julie K Brown. 

They've also selected and digested ten great new novels including the new Sebastian Faulks, they dissect the success of the 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' series and compile the less than favourable thoughts of famous writers on the movie adaptations of their books!
