Whalt Whitman and Bolton? Makes me want more!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With Walt Whitman in Bolton: Spirituality, Sex and Socialism in a Northern Mill Town (Paperback)This is one of those books that reveals the strange links life throws up. A sort of literary 6 degrees of separation thing. If a couple of dedicated socialists hadn't sent a birthday card to Walt this book may never have been written and the walks that annually take place celebrating his birthday may never have got started.
This book isn't just about Walt though - it makes you want to know more about Bolton's northern socialist history, the Clarion Cycling Club, sexuality on the moors and lots more. An absolute delight and a credit to the author for some great research into working class history that needs to be revealed.
