About this product
- DescriptionThe thoughtful stories featured in this collection capture the soul of the city of Leeds by tracing the unique contours of 50 years of social and ecomic change. In one story the Millgarth Police Station reverberates with the early adrenaline rush of a case they won t close for years. Ather tells of a teenage boy who trails the city center bars of the 1980s in thrall to his hero, a Leeds United football hooligan. Despite being products of their time, these stories remain distinct from the larger events and wider currents that have shaped the cultural landscape of today s Leeds, a modern city with both problems and promise. Featured authors include Tony Harrison, Jeremy Dyson, Shamshad Khan, Ian Duhig, David Peace, Susan Everett, M. Y. Alam, Andrea Semple, Martyn Bedford, and Tom Palmer.
