Gordon Legge was described once as having "an ear like a recording angel". How right a description that was, for here - in his second collection of short stories - he has captured the essence and dialogue of small town life and love as only he can.
The stories, more ambitious and more bizarre than his previous collection, also bring more warmth and heart into his writing, particularly in Pop Life (about three record playing, list making friends) where he establishes himself as a rival to the Nick Hornby crown.
Legge is carving a neat niche for his writing, as the voice of the disaffected, urban, small-town individual, who enjoys football and music and the pub and signs on every week. Long may he continue.
