Josephine Cox: Child of the North Summary

Josephine Cox: Child of the North by Piers Dudgeon

Josephine Cox returns to the land of her birth, the environment which provides so many settings for her novels, and in the company of her fictional characters rediscovers the influences whiech define her as a writer. The author has talked at length with Josephine Cox about her early years, and weaves together her childhood with the people she draws in her books. He has visited Blackburn where Jo grew up, delved into the town's archives, talked to people there who remember earlier days and taken many photographs to complement the contemporary pictures he has unearthed. The result is Jo Cox's story brought to life through character and reminiscence, photographs and imagination.

Josephine Cox: Child of the North Reviews

the poignancy of the narrative is enhanced by the apt choice of photographs: grainy monochromes from the archives, some - such as the 'Tram Boulevard in 1950s smog' - have the tainted beauty of a Brassai - Time Out
