Birmingham Nouveau by Alan Mahar

Buy Now Price £7.99

The ever-changing face of Birmingham illustrated by 20 stunning photographs and 20 prize-winning stories.

Has regeneration transformed the city? Is this Birmingham reborn? A new Birmingham?

This sparkling selection of short stories with a decidedly Brummie perspective embodies Birmingham’s fresh-found vitality. Nouveau will delight short-story readers, city dwellers, fans (and critics) of the second city.

From John Wagstaff’s magical tale of a girl’s escape from street life to Anne Dyas’s Edwardian Tea Room romance, these gems chosen from a Birmingham Post competition – together with atmospheric photos – evoke the many faces of a charismatic city.

Wars between balti chefs, hope rekindled at a market stall, the ups and downs of footballing passion, costumes and dances for a carnival procession – just some of the themes in this lively and accomplished anthology.
