Sometimes facing up to your problems is just not an option. Dixe Wills reveals the ultimate rural, coastal, urban and mountainous getaways for when life gets a bit too much…”Places to Hide” offers a huge range of hiding places throughout Britain, from a discreet corner of the urban jungle of Birmingham to somewhere just off the coast between Talsarnau and Portmeirion. It gives helpful hints on concealment techniques, from crouching to total identity change, and includes up-to-date information on local sources of food, water and camouflage netting. To provide inspiration, Dixe also recounts the experiences of famous hiders such as King Charles II and Lawrence of Arabia, who have proved true the hider’s maxim: ‘You can run ? and now you can hide.’
Dixe Wills writes a monthly column for culture magazine Third Way and has contributed sections for two books produced by the football magazine When Saturday Comes. A former human rights reporter in Guatemala, he now lives in the relative safety of Bethnal Green.
