Lush, rolling affectionate whimsy adjoins blinkered folly,
This review is from: Lancashire, Where Women Die of Love (Paperback)
Not much to add to what others say - the author clearly loves the county (and its ghostly boundaries) as do I, collects and displays its reliefs wonderfully.
That he thinks the hijab is just a new instance of the old Lancs scarf though shows that he's either a liar or an Ostrich.
Mind you, he DOES write for the Indy and the New Statesman. And he somehow avoided picking up the accent in his school days in St Helens, shortly before being packed off to boarding school, away from those he now condescends to move among.
