9780091910235: Pies and Prejudice: In Search of the North

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.

About the Author:

Stuart Maconie is a journalist and writer whose books include the acclaimed official biographies of both Blur and James as well as his musical odyssey Cider With Roadies.

Review:

"Stirring and rather wonderful."  The 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."  The Guardian

"A lyrical, passionate, humorous and argumentative tour du force . . . the perfect blend of humorously incisive northern-travel writing. An early contender for best travel book of the year."  Big Issue North

"A witty travelogue."   Christchurch City Libraries Blog
