review All Points North

X problems to probation to American tours football to family to running away to Iceland Simon Armitage explores growing up and. I live just down the valley from the places that Simon talks about so I have to confess an additional interest in this book However it s still a good read although I suspect his readers drop off the further south you travel I particularly like his news snippets my favourite being the Halifax man who misread the World record for living in a tree and came down after 26 days instead of 26 years Very droll funny and Northern

    Typically amusing volume of short prose pieces and some poetry with the common theme of theme of The North and especially Yorkshire Armitage is an acute observer of the small things that make us all absurd and describes them with great affection and wry humour

    Understatedly enjoyable this meandering collection of anecdotes poems illustrative news pieces and fictional asides aims to uietly say something about The North so Yorkshire Compared to others on the same subject ie Stuart Maconie this is delivered in an unpretentious ‘take it or leave it’ manner a little
