'A joy. Celebrates the real world and revels in its mad glory' Sue Townsend, Sunday Times

All Points North
is part-memoir and part-excursion. Charting the rugged and uneven terrain of a writer's formative years - from tax problems to probation to American tours, football to family to running away to Iceland - Simon Armitage explores growing up and being Northern. It's about humour, language, writing, film, houses, homes, time wasters, one loose tyre, you, me and all points in-between.

'Laugh-out-loud funny'

'A delight' Jonathan Raban, Times Literary Supplement

'A perfect holiday dipper' Scotsman

'An Alan Bennett-style diary' Daily Telegraph

About the Publisher

Penguin Books

Penguin Books

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
