This is the official website of Stuart Maconie, author of Pies and Prejudice and Adventures on the High Teas


Welcome to my website, I'm Stuart Maconie, but I guess you already know that if you're already here, and I do various things for fun and profit. I present radio shows. I make the occasional TV programme. I fight crime. Well, not really. But what I really do, my first love and ongoing passion, is writing.

Over the past few years, I’ve written several books books which has given me masses of pleasure and interest and satisfaction and I hope some of that’s been communicated to the people who’ve bought and read them. If that includes you, thank you. In fact I have a new one out called The People’s Songs. It’s a project that I feel very proud of and passionate about and tells the story of modern Britain through the records that we listened to and loved during the dramatic and kaleidoscopic period from the Second World War to the present day. The book ties into a radio series which broadcasts on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday nights at 10pm. You can listen again here and find out which songs are featured in the book. here
