The Book of Sheffield : A City in Short Fiction, Paperback / softback Book

The Book of Sheffield : A City in Short Fiction Paperback / softback

Edited by Catherine Taylor

Part of the Reading the City series

Paperback / softback


Known for both its industrial roots and arboreal abundance, Sheffield has always been a city of two halves.

From elegant parks and gardens to brutalist high-rise estates and the hinterland nightclubs of 'Centertainment', it is a city caught between the forges of the past and the melting pot of the present.

Bringing together new short stories from some of the city's most celebrated writers, The Book of Sheffield traces the contours of this complex landscape from both sides of the economic dividing line.

From the aspirations of young creatives, ultimately driven to leave, to the more immediate demands of refugees, scrap metal collectors, and student radicals, these stories offer ten different look-out points from which to gaze down on the ever-changing face of the 'Steel City'.
