A Northerner in exile, Stuart Maconie goes on a journey in search of the North, attempting to discover where the cliches end and the truth begins. He travels from Wigan Pier to Blackpool Tower and Newcastle's Bigg Market to the Lake District to find his own Northern Soul, encountering along the way an exotic cast of chippy Scousers, pie-eating woollybacks, topless Geordies, mad-for-it Mancs, Yorkshire nationalists and brothers in southern exile.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stuart Maconie is the best thing to come out of Wigan since the A58 to Bolton" * Peter Kay *
"An heir to Alan Bennett ... stirring and rather wonderful" -- Anthony Quinn * Sunday Times *
"Lancastrian and unstoppably garrulous, Stuart Maconie revels in reading his own dialect rich pun-a-minute Pies and Prejudice." -- Christina Hardyment * The Times *
"Funnier than Bill Bryson. There's lots to love about Maconie's North - even for Southern Jessies" * Metro *
"Maconie makes a jovial, self-deprecating narrator. Sharp and funny" * Guardian *
