4.0 out of 5 stars Reet Gradely!, 22 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Pies and Prejudice: In search of the North (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this examination of Northerness. I've always like Maconie's radio and music journalism work and this didnt dissapoint me. Maconie knows the north (especially the North West) very well. It's a great mix of pop culture, social history, politics and Greggs the bakers.

As for the critical reviews on here:
Yes he does tar Southerners with the same brush but its obvious that this is a deliberate reflection of the common attitude displayed by the Home Counties based media. They don't like it up 'em do they?
He misses out some major places in the North( e.g. York) but you can't cover everywhere and when was the last time you read about life in Skelmersdale?
