Our Manchester Gallery celebrates the international influence of our city's creativity. Cultural commentator and critic Paul Morley visits the gallery to talk about Northern-ness, the subject of his new book.
In this talk Paul presents some thoughts on "the North", and an early and exclusive preview of some of the stories and ideas in his next book, The North (And Almost Everything In It.) To be published in June next year, the book is a mix of memoir, social history and cultural observation in which Paul explores his own, and our sense, of what it is to be Northern. We'll hear from Paul why and how he wrote this book, and how his "memory and experience of the North is as much an hallucination as it is reality."
