Towns of Two Halves extracts:
“If anyone doubted that the Government’s references to a Northern Powerhouse were empty, offensively disingenuous rhetoric, here [the V&A acquiring 10% of the National Media Museum’s collection] was another telling piece of evidence.”
“Of the collections, Tony Ray-Jones stays in my mind most clearly – the inexplicable Bacup Coconut Dancers is unforgettable.”
“Charlotte [Brontë], calling on William Makepeace Thackeray on one of her journeys to London, was not best pleased by his insistence on calling her Jane Eyre. Asked whether she liked London, she replied: ‘Yes and no.'”
