Landing is the first volume of Mersey Minis, a series of small books celebrating Liverpool’s 800th anniversary.
Bursting with brilliant writing inspired by Liverpool and the River Mersey, Landing includes writers ranging from the extremely famous to the completely unknown, from well-loved novelists to young arrivals, from poets and princes to maidservants. What they have in common is Liverpool. Some of the writers were born in the city, others are strangers passing through, or experiencing their first footfall in Europe. But they have all visited or lived in (and in one notable exception merely dreamed about) Liverpool, and, luckily for us, committed their impressions to paper.
