‘Scrappin’ wi’ Scouse’

New to the writing credits of Brick’s alter ego, John Stuart Clark, is a short story based on his years as a ‘tatter’ working the yarn factories, garages and back-knockings of Nottingham. It appears in the third anthology of themed writing published by Five Leaves Publishing, a series that has garnered much praise in the columns of the TLS. Also on board are such literary heavyweights as IMPAC winner Jon McGregor, crime writer John Harvey, chair of the Crime Writers Association Danuta Reah, and dramatist Michael Eaton.

Scrappin’ wi’ Scouse tells the story of the legendary antics of the city’s arch scrounger, William Holloway, and the free-ranging scrapmen who operated at the margins of legality back in the 1970s and 1980s.
