"Michael Kelly’s writing is
driven by love of his native
Liverpool, which reaches back to his ancestral Ireland.
In this collection of short biographies, Michael becomes
the friend of his subjects, rather than a mere researcher.
He writes of them because he is one of them, an Irish
Liverpudlian in the grand old tradition."
David Charters of the Liverpool Daily Post
