Towns of Two Halves extracts:
“On 7 August 2010 I set out to watch Oldham play at Tranmere. And the game I actually watched was on 15 October the following year. Did it take 14 months to reach the Wirral? Sometimes it felt like it.”

VW Campervan, sunday breakfast
“I could see the aspirational appeal of the thing at last.”

“It may just have been Tango, but my guess is that in all early Campervans, changing gear was like trying to pin the tail on the donkey, at arm’s length, in the dark, and with the donkey fidgeting.”
“We drove to the campsite [where] our orange VW Campervan drew admiring glances and comments. But the people paying lip-service to that kind of nostalgia returned to their six-bedroom awnings and their HD home entertainment systems; we settled into our cosy, slightly claustrophobic accommodation without even a radio.”
