  In The Siege of Trencher’s Farm, an effete American professor named George Magruder has rented a farm in the English countryside, moving there with his wife and daughter in order to write a book while on sabbatical. George’s wife, Louise, is bitchy, British, and very unhappy with her excessively passive and tolerant husband. This essay aims to focus firstly on the typical features of Cornish dialect, also called Anglo-Cornish, Cornish English or Cornu-English (the variety of English spoken in Cornwall) and then on how those typicalities are rendered in Gordon.

Published by Titan Books. Written by Gordon Williamspages, Fiction Released on August 16th, Review: Arguably one of Sam Peckinpah's best films is Straw Dogs—a movie in which how far the limits of a peaceful man can be pushed before he strikes back/5. However, unlike the Peckinpah film, I feel the book is very exciting for much of the course of the tale while Peckinpah’s film gets bogged down at times.
