• "A tribute and a rallying call"

    The Guardian
  • "Maconie’s book is not only a heartfelt tribute to Wilkinson and the marchers, but a reaffirmation of the role of the personal within the political, and a rallying call for anyone stirred by the story of Jarrow"

    The Observer
  • "With yet another conservative government refusing to budge it is hard to avoid Maconie’s conclusion that persuading the uncommitted is as vital as ever"

    New Statesman
  • "The result is this rich, evocative book. Part travelogue, part history, part examination of a nation in flux. It is all a delight ****"
