Julia Bell and Jackie Gay have brought together twenty-four outstanding writers, including Lesley Glaister, Kevin Sampson, Julia Darling, Andrea Ashworth, Harland Miller, Alexei Sayle, Julie Burchill, Jane Rogers, Joolz Denby and David Almond in this brilliant anthology that boldly examines the contemporary landscape of England.
