Inspired by and echoing James Joyce’s Dubliners and set in and around Castleford, Yorkshire in the early 1960s, these fifteen stories range from the Cuba crisis and the threat of nuclear holocaust, through the trials of young love and the tribulations of a gay vicar, to the implications of women’s lib. There is a time as well as a
place: an age of innocence of sorts as the simple pop song
titles indicate; at the end of old certainties and ways and on the
brink of our still expanding modernity. As with Dubliners such matters emerge through the thoughts and actions of real human characters who touch occasionally perhaps on the tragic and most certainly on the comic.
