An account of what it's like to live in Yorkshire, in particular the village of Marsden. Armitage writes about family, football, amateur dramatics, the moors, the pub, and occasionally going over the top to Lancashire. Originally published in 1998 by Viking.
A book about the North, Simon Armitage's North. Not Northumberland, or Humberside, or Newcastle, or even Lancashire - but that bit of Yorkshire where the M1 slashes across the M62, where Jarvis Cocker meets Geoffrey Boycott, Emily Bronte meets Ted Hughes, Peter Sutcliffe meets David Hockney. His subjects, described with affection, acerbicness, wit and inside knowledge, include a typical Saturday night out in West Yorkshire, Hebden Bridge - the hippy capital of the universe, watching Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon, the electrified east coast line, and so on.
