Ghost Town by Jeff Young

Liverpool is a city of ghosts. Through the centuries, millions have lived here, or come here to find a new, better life, and found safe harbour. More than any other city in Britain its history resonates in the buildings, landscape and stories that have seeped into the lives of its inhabitants. The writer Jeff Young has long been fascinated with the city, its history and how it intersects with his own life. In this new book he explores his own experiences and the life of the Liverpool, taking journeys through the city and away from it, creating new ways of mapping his home town. Layering memory, history, photography and more, this is a highly original approach to this great city, which will find many readers in Liverpool and beyond.
