MMU N16 28

As part of their new blog Manchester Metropolitan University's All Saint's Library Special Collections invited me to write a note on my newest edition.
Since Gaye Smith first added my pre-'bio auto graphic' editions to what they have back in the early 2000s, followed by Jonathan Carson and then Jayne Burgess and Jane Pendlebury in recent years, the collection maintains a complete run of everything I've done in this sphere.

It's appreciated.

Mist and dry stone walls and blood – 'Happy Valley' series 2

A woman looks with a sense of foreboding at her beloved, carefree grandson. He's running ahead of her, above a valley in Yorkshire. What lies ahead?

The superlative second series of 'Happy Valley' just ended, having starred a bevy of superb actors both written for and directed by Sally Wainwright.
Sarah Lancashire as Sergeant Catherine Cawood was never less than compelling as she crossed a wild terrain of emotions.
Her last look is worth a BBC license fee in itself.

Like a walk in a fierce wind it was breathtaking.

There's an interview with Wainwright here
