All Points North

Front Cover
Penguin Adult, May 28, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 256 pages
All Points North is part-memoir and part-excursion. Charting the rugged and uneven terrain of a writer s formative years from tax problems to probation to American tours, football to family to running away to Iceland Simon Armitage explores growing up and being Northern. It s about humour, language, writing, film, houses, homes, time wasters, one loose tyre, you, me and all points in-between.

The book is worth the price simply for Armitage's explanation of how to write a script for "Last of the Summer Wine". A wonderful book. Read full review
