Review from Amazon – thank you RaeJoyce who ever your are.

Home; A Personal Geography of Sheffield is a book I came across through my interest in the work of social Geographer Danny Dorling. Both men share affection for Sheffield, the northern city that has become second home to them. The impetus to write his book, claims Lee in the introduction, was “the seemingly remorseless exhortation of the delights of everything beyond our shores that drew me into looking at Sheffield anew”. He then details various articles from UK press to evidence a “type” of Brit who leaves the UK to live abroad (which means I’m a-typical – a migrant who doesn’t take the Daily Fail as gospel and who abhors both the racism at home and that brought to NZ by those fleeing the UK). Home details a year in Lee’s life from 2007-08 (the year I left Britain to experience New Zealand). What struck me about the book was the tone: Laurie Lee meets Orwell with a sprinkling of Auden? Not exactly; it’s far too readable for such reductive comparisons. It is addictive in its mix of geography meets history meets trivia meets journal, and is in parts very moving. As other reviewers note, Home is a must for anyone with an interest in Sheffield. But Lee’s skill lies in expanding the features of Sheffield to speak of wider social issues, which he does so eloquently if for the want of a decent editor. Home is a must for anyone with an interest in their fellow human beings.
