  • 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

  • Maconie makes a jovial, self-deprecating narrator. Sharp and funny

  • 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.
