Location And The Writer, part 1

LocationWriter1

In new series ‘Location and the Writer’, we visit a Cumbrian hill-farm, a suburban shopping centre and a literary capital city. Kathleen Jones revisits the remote hill farm she grew up on in Cumbria, and the landscape that shaped her. Catherine O’Flynn explores the hidden spaces of Merry Hill, the suburban shopping centre where she used to work. Doug Johnstone ponders his adopted city of Edinburgh, a literary capital that he was nervous of using as a setting for his novels.
