It’s official: local writing, as we expect it to be, no longer exists. Tubthumping, which introduces the work of seventeen new Yorkshire writers, is here to prove it. Human preoccupations – love and hate, anger and betrayal, lust and longing – are played out against a panoramic backdrop that would have been inconceivable before now. Edited by Adrian Wilson with an introduction by Alice Nutter of Chumbawamba.
