Amazon Editorial Review:

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.

"Witty & wise, with more good lines than the Angel of the North" says the back cover blurb &, yeah I can agree with that.

Of course some chapters were more entertaining than others & I particulary enjoyed Mills & Bhuna (Lancashire) & "Cardboard Box? You Were Lucky" (Yorkshire) - though I do have one criticism here, while talking of brass bands, there was no mention of The Brighouse & Rastrick...disgraceful!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book...even though it was written by a Lancastrian ;o)

read as part of the 2009 ULTIMATE CHALLENGE - themed "NON-FICTION" read for July
& the REDUCE MOUNT TBR CHALLENGE (#59)
