Alan Moore knows the score about Stuart Maconie's 'Long Road from Jarrow'

29th June 2017

Ahead of the release of Stuart Maconie's new book, 'Long Road from Jarrow', released on 20th July, we've just received this stellar review from the one, the only, Alan Moore. 

Footsore in spacetime, hiking simultaneously through memory and landscape, in Long Road from Jarrow Stuart Maconie shadows the defiant, desperate and dignified crusade of 1936 through a modern world where everything has changed except for the austerity, the poverty, the national and global instability, the worrying ascendancy of fascism, and the resilient decency of ordinary people. This is a necessary book; a necessary journey through English identity, and one which you’ll be glad that you embarked on. Now, yes, now is the hour.
