No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy : Memoirs of a Working-Class Reader. Mark Hodkinson grew up among the terrace houses of Rochdale in a house with just one book. His dad kept it on top of a wardrobe with other items of great worth - wedding photographs and Mark's National Cycling Proficiency certificate. If Mark wanted to read it, he was warned not to crease the pages or slam shut the covers. Today, Mark is an author, journalist and publisher.

No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy is his story of growing up a working-class lad during the 1970s and 1980s.
