Product description


‘To find the most exciting new voices, you have to leave the metropolitan mainstream; regionalism is where it’s at these days… Hard Shoulder, … published by the estimable Tindal Street Press, was a wonderful surprise: 16 excellent new writers with little in common but a fierce commitment to their home town and the task of faithfully celebrating the lives that unfold in it. The tank of this great city, so under explored in modern literature, has never been so vividly or diversely conveyed.’ Jonathan Coes’ book of the year, (New Statesman)

‘Hard Shoulder is cool – an excellent anthology of short stories about Brum … 16 well-crafted works of love for our second city’ -- Loaded


16 urban fictions from Birmingham's young writers. Stories of forbidden love, theft, racism, chaos and isolation; of the fallout from sexual disaster, the death of the nuclear family, the rebirth of the spirit of rebellion.
