Annotation

A Northerner in exile, Stuart Maconie goes on a journey in search of the North, attempting to discover where the cliches end and the truth begins.

Publisher Description

A northerner in exile, stateless and confused, hearing rumors of Harvey Nichols in Leeds and Maseratis in Wilmslow, the author goes in search of The North. Delving into his own past, it is a riotously funny journey in search of where the cliches end and the truth begins. He travels from Wigan Pier to Blackpool Tower, the Bigg Market in Newcastle to the daffodil-laden Lake District in search of his own Northern Soul, encountering along the way an exotic cast of characters while he battles with his own identity.

Review

"Stuart Maconie is the best thing to come out of Wigan since the A58 to Bolton" Peter Kay "An heir to Alan Bennett ... stirring and rather wonderful" -- Anthony Quinn Sunday Times "Funnier than Bill Bryson. There's lots to love about Maconie's North - even for Southern Jessies" Metro "Maconie makes a jovial, self-deprecating narrator. Sharp and funny" Guardian "A lyrical, passionate, humorous and argumentative tour du force ... Imagine Nick Danzinger meets Nik Cohen meets Ricky Tomlinson and you've got the perfect blend of humorously incisive northern-travel writing. An early contender for best travel book of the year." Big Issue North
