England Calling: 24 Stories for the 21st Century

Jackie Gay, Julia Bell

1 Reseña
There have been numerous anthologies of Scottish, Irish, Northern and London writing, but up until now no anthology that has attempted to bring together the best of English writing. At a time when Scottish and Welsh devolution means that English culture and identity are being hotly discussed, this anthology of new writing from a nation rediscovering itself will be timely and controversial. English fiction has traditionally been rooted in a strong sense of place. ENGLAND CALLING renews that tradition by providing a series of fictional snapshots of the different areas of England today, its landscapes, cityscapes, dialects, atmospheres; from Suffolk to Cornwall, Essex to Yorkshire, Lancashire to Surrey. Authors include Lesley Glaister, Kevin Sampson, Julia Darling, Andrea Ashworth, Harland Miller, Alexei Sayle, Julie Burchill, Jane Rogers, Joolz Denby, David Almond.
