The Book of Liverpool

A City in Short Fiction

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A baby blown out of an upstairs window by a WWII bomb lives to hear others tell the tale... A woman embarks on a long-term obsession with a city landmark, abandoning her lover for the Liver... A bricklayer working on the foundations of a never-built cathedral becomes its evangelist, its full splendour soaring only in his mind... Bringing together fiction from some of the city's most celebrated writers, The Book of Liverpool traces the unique contours that decades of social and economic change can impress on a city. Set against key historical moments from the Second World War to the Capital of Culture year, these stories question what belonging and home mean in the Liverpudlian context, from the regenerated city centre to satellite suburbs, from the sparring cathedrals to the no-go concrete housing estates. Liverpool emerges in these short stories as a city in constant flux: haunted by ghosts, buoyed up by myths, and shifting with an ebb and flow like the Mersey itself.
