John Cornelius's affectionate and witty portrait of Liverpool 8, first published twenty years ago, will amuse and entertain people wherever they live. Cornelius escorts us among old-fashioned, small-time English shops, Arab and Indian muzak-filled supermarkets, Pakistani newsagents and Chinese chip-shops. Fortified with beer and peanuts, armed with sketch-pad and graphite sticks, Cornelius worked as a quick sketch artist, and he conveys with great charm the contradictions and eccentricities of a community he knew intimately.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An extravaganza of autobiographical nostalgia... the most dramatic chapter is on the riots. * New Society *
Cornelius' book is an exhilarating slice of Liverpool social history written by someone who loves his native city. * The Face *
