Editorial Reviews

Review

"A tribute and a rallying call" * The Guardian * "Maconie's book is not only a heartfelt tribute to Wilkinson and the marchers, but a reaffirmation of the role of the personal within the political, and a rallying call for anyone stirred by the story of Jarrow" * The Observer * "With yet another conservative government refusing to budge it is hard to avoid Maconie's conclusion that persuading the uncommitted is as vital as ever" * New Statesman * "The result is this rich, evocative book. Part travelogue, part history, part examination of a nation in flux. It is all a delight ****" * Mail on Sunday, EVENT Magazine * "Footsore in spacetime, hiking simultaneously through memory and landscape, in Long Road from Jarrow Stuart Maconie shadows the defiant, desperate and dignified crusade of 1936 through a modern world where everything has changed except for the austerity, the poverty, the national and global instability, the worrying ascendancy of fascism, and the resilient decency of ordinary people. This is a necessary book; a necessary journey through English identity, and one which you'll be glad that you embarked on. Now, yes, now is the hour." -- Alan Moore
