    My name is Matthew Drzymala, and I am the author of the award winning comedy book series, The Bumpkinton Tales.I love writing humour It just feels natural to me I wrote a lot of dark stories when I attended my creative writing course in 2012 13, but the one piece of comedy I wrote was the easiest thing I ve ever written.Bumpkinton was born.My stories Last Christmas and Bittersweet have won awards, and I also won a National Adult Learner Award.Since becoming an author, I have started to attend schools and colleges, speaking to students about creative writing.I also run a writing group called The Laid back Writers Group, which meets one Sunday a month in Liverpool.Further to being an author, I am studying for a Diploma to become a Freelance Copywriter, which consists of writing anything from homepage and blog copy to advertisements and radio scripts.Yes, it s safe to say becoming an author as truly transformed my life.

  • First impressions, this kind of reminded me of Barbara Pym in that there’s a wry wit that crops up in the observation from time to time which is reminiscent of hers. The pace is gentle and this book is series of short stories so you can dip in and finish an instalment. For the most part I really liked the characters, and I enjoyed that some were rather trying, just as people in a real life village are. There was a great atmosphere of gossip created and I enjoyed the whole, does he or doesn’t [...]


  • Filled with wit, and good old English humor. This was a very smooth, enjoyable read. A great book to grab and go to the beach, you can pick and choose which short story to enjoy. The characters were all very unique and had that typical small-town mentality, which I can relate to seeing it and growing up around it. The small town talk, radiated with humor, and you found yourself chuckling to yourself, because it is oh so accurate! Everyone focuses on the “exciting/different” person/couple in [...]


  • I just love this collection! I read 'Bittersweet' by Drzymala a little while ago (also included in this collection) and fell in love with the charming characters. When I saw this being discussed on the authors Facebook page, I knew I had to read it!I was not disappointed. This collection reads exactly as 'Bittersweet' did. It has the same charm about it and the same characters that I've grown to love, even if they are strange!Growing up in a small village, I am fully aware of the fact that every [...]


  • I received this book as part of Good Reads First ReadsThis is a collection of tales from a village. - Some are humerous and some not so. Between the different characters you learn of village life from the most humdrum of moments to the hilarity of it all. From singles night in the village to Christmas with a very odd Santa. This village has it all


  • This is a charming book! Warm, witty and humorous. It reminded me in style of Gervase Phinn. The characters are so well drawn that you feel you may well bump into them in the shops or down the road. I am very much looking forward to the next novel.


  • Gently amusing stories about a village somewhere in the south of England. Some annoying aspects such as the tweaking of titles of TV shows and stars but not too bad a read. Will probably look out for further books in the series.


  • Sometimes down the passing of life you come across something which is very different. Yet just like your life and your surroundings. This is exactly how I felt when I finished reading The Bumpkinton Tales: Volume One. The story moves around the members of the people living in a lesser known and busy in themselves town called Bumpkinton. As each page turns you are given a peek into houses and lives of the various people of the place. Their past, their present, their behaviors and their character. [...]


  • Fun collection Fun collection of stories surrounding the village of Bumpkinton. Well written and really enjoyable, will wait patiently for the next stories to be released.


  • I had read this authors other book, but since this book was very different I had no idea what to expect.Bumpkinton had a weird start for me, because it was short stories and each chapter was different characters. However, once I picked up the idea of the story and figured out the characters, it was OK. It was a an easy, lighthearted read. Some of the characters were loveable and some were annoying, but they were all perfect for this story. I didn't like The Bachelor story, because I found it har [...]
