Did Manchester's gangs help to inspire a cult classic?
The hinterland of Anthony Burgess
Good morning members — today we have a great piece about the author Anthony Burgess and his Manchester upbringing, by David Barnett.

If you think a couple of friends or colleagues might enjoy being Mill members, we are going to repeat the offer we did at Christmas: If you buy one gift membership for a friend, we will throw in a second one free! Just buy the first one, and then email editor@manchestermill with the name and email of the second recipient, and they will get their membership set up too. Just click the button below.
