Win The Manchester Compendium

Win yourself The Manchester Compendium worth £20

Published on April 28th 2008.

Win The Manchester Compendium

The Manchester Compendium is not a standard guidebook. It doesn’t have hotel details or a listing of the best bars and clubs, but it does take an engaging sideways glance at the city and its history and buildings.

The author is Ed Glinert, who was one of the founders of City Life magazine in Manchester in the 1980s.

The way the book works is by following the streets and districts of the city seeking out the interesting facts associated with the various places. If you’re a flaneur, a stroller, then it will be perfect for you, combining the big story and the juicy moments of eccentricity. It’s very good on Manchester’s radical history and the city’s nineteenth and early twentieth century global significance and has a lot of ‘didn’t-know-that-moments’. His insights into recent political history are interesting too.

It's the sort of book you won’t half enjoy a good row with, and it's none the worse for that.
