‘Hometown Tales’ is a series of books pairing exciting new voices with some of the most talented and important writers at work today. Some of the tales are fiction and some are narrative non-fiction – they are all powerful, fascinating, and moving, and aim to celebrate regional diversity and explore the meaning of home. In these pages on Lancashire, you’ll find two unique tales. An arresting portrait of a couple coming home to Lancashire, set over a pub crawl one night in Preston, written by award-winning novelist Jenn Ashworth. And, from new voice Benjamin Webster, a vivid coming-of-age story that traces the political and cultural history of Manchester, from its industrial past to its eventual separation from the county.
