Calm down, calm down

I seem to be inhabiting England's Northwest through literature this week: I'm teaching Niall Griffiths' Wreckage (entirely in Scouse and very, very rude), have just taught Bad Blood (Shropshire/Wales border) and some of my students are writing about Alan Garner's The Owl Service - one of Cheshire's finest writers straying into Wales. I've also just taken delivery of Helen Walsh's latest novel, Once Upon A Time In England, set in Warrington (her Brass was a tour de force, and Sage's Good As Her Word: Selected Journalism has also turned up.

Here's a view of Liverpool from the 90s - those chaps on The Fast Show.
