On a rare school trip to the local castle, they would discover that not only did they have a much bigger family than most, but one more powerful than any. After the twins, along with their best friends Billy and Emma, are chased through the castle by the school bully Charlie Benson, they are guided to a distant magical land. There they are met by a mysterious woman who tells them that their father is lost, but their mother lives. Although alive, she has been bound by spell and now serves the most perilous of wizards - A tyrant of a wizard, who in order to rule had dispensed with his entire family, has invoked a law whereby only a certain level of magic is allowed and is protected by four white faceless guardians. With no idea where they are, but determined to free the mother they had never known from her bind, the young travellers go on to experience the many wonders, and dangers, of this strange and magical land. Along the way, they are taught magic, make their first ever magical trade, and come face to face with wizards, witches, dragons and giants. They discover that there is much more to their lives than they could ever possibly have imagined, and unwittingly, pay a visit to the most magical place ever known. Can Alfie and Rosie save their mother? It’s an enormous task, but they're certainly prepared to risk their lives trying. More

According to its author, Beautiful Deconstruction is a novel of loss, of love, a story of growing old. What he doesn’t include in the bio line and very cleverly so is that the story is also an observation of a forgotten time, a bygone age, the stiff British upper lip, a life of denial. From the present to the past and back again we journey into the lives of two men Anthony and Douglas as they start a new life in their 40s in France. Marks excellent (as always) observance delight and humour comes into force as he takes on a journey throughout their village life where by reading you feel you are there in a quaint French village, buying a baguette and sipping a café with Pierre, the bar-cafe owner. Visually it is appealing as are the characters he has created, the formidable post office madam, the supermarche owner, his own cackling Spanish housekeeper and the soap sudden laundry mistress. French men appear with cloth caps and cigarettes perched on their upper lip. You can smell the pastis and café as you turn the pages. And just when you think everything is swimming on nicely, in the background is a niggling thought that something has to happen. And it does, very suddenly. The fort that Mark has created is suddenly altered and, as he writes, “the deconstruction has begun.” Marks writing also alters dramatically between humour and sadness. The final chapter between Anthony and Douglas is heart wrenching, the loss of their animals equally so. You wonder how much of the authors own life has been captured, changed and hidden between the lines. Perhaps none, perhaps some. The British stiff upper lip then comes into play, “and then what happened next…” Certain aspects of Anthony and Douglas’s lives are missing and quite rightly so. The timespan is withdrawn but one feels the book is set thirty or so years so. Sex and sexuality is also removed, it isn’t required. This isn’t a love story in the strongest sense but a story of just two men who live together probably for the sake of living. A sad book, a happy book, a beautiful book and one that leaves you smelling the lavender and poppies and harking for a more solitude time. More

In short, what it feels like to grow older. “I learned very early on in my life that nothing was for ever; so I should have been aware of disillusion in early middle age: but, somehow, we try to obliterate early warnings and go cantering along hopefully, idiotically...” Beautiful Deconstruction charts the disintegration of the idyll between Douglas and Anthony as they leave their retreat in France and return full circle for an uncertain future in London.
