Has anyone read Pies and Prejudice by Stuart Maconie? I picked it up in a Costa Coffee in Waterstones yesterday and read a chapter. It seems pretty good. The premise is that the author wants to establish what exactly 'the North' is. He does this by travelling all across the north in search of evidence of distinct cultural differences to the South and also examines whether the cliches stand up to scrutiny. He writes in a very sardonic, dry manner and it seems entertaining, but before I part any cash on another book for the TBR pile, I'd like to know if the rest of the book is any good.
