Review

From the Back Cover

'I was irresistibly reminded of Alan Bennett - there is the same wry humour, wonderfully telling selection of detail or remark . . . a fine balance of humour and poignancy' The Times

All Points North is part-memoir and part-excursion. Charting the rugged and uneven terrain of a writer's formative years - from tax problems to probation to American tours, football to family to running away to Iceland - Simon Armitage explores growing up and being Northern. It's about humour, language, writing, film, houses, homes, time wasters, one loose tyre, you, me and all points in-between.

'Laugh-out-loud funny . . . has all the resonant precision of a poet's ear and eye' Independent

'A delight - high-spirited, light-footed, very funny and wickedly observant' Jonathan Raban, The Times Literary Supplement

'The salty prose of an original poetic voice' Melvyn Bragg, Observer, Books of the Year
