The fight to bring one of Manchester’s most innovative writers back into print
A very moving piece, thorough, focussed and compassionate research. I hope the book will be available to buy soon. Thank you for recovering this important piece of our history
'Cotton the world and ruin the child' what a line. I've never heard of Jack Hilton and we all should have done.
I've read many authors' words who hail from Manchester and Lancashire and I would love to read this book too.
Thanks Jack for all your amazing research and writing this very moving piece.
A fascinating article - I'd never even heard of Jack Hilton. Like others, I want to know what you are doing to make his work more available. I'd like to buy a copy of 'Caliban Shrieks' - but not from Amazon!
Brilliant read.....what are your plans for Hilton's work?
A great piece of investigative journalism with an unexpected but well-deserved outcome. Very moving.
Good stuff Jack, is the book available to buy?
Good and resourceful detective work :) Well done Jack!
Amazed at your journey to find out about Hilton. Brilliant work and so relevant to what’s happening in the Rochdale, Chadderton and many parts of Manchester in 2022. Maybe a present to be sent to our so called Labour politicians in Manchester might be appropriate but I’d imagine they’d have a similar reaction to those who rejected Hilton’s idea in earlier times. Great work by yourself- would love to purchase a copy if it does become available
What an interesting article that has inspired me to read Jack Hilton.
This is brilliant journalism. I’d never heard of Hilton but I hope you can see a way to republishing.
A reminder that rights so hard won can be eroded. Rights to demonstrate are under threat today and Hilton’s story is so relevant to our current politics. Who would have thought we’d have food banks and children going hungry in one of the wealthiest countries in the world? Another good book is The Raggedtrousered Philanthropist.
Thank you so must for this wonderful piece of investigative journalism.
How are audio ebooks produced?
What an excellent and thought provoking article this morning. The rage in the excerpts just leaps off the page and Jack, your literary analysis and use of language shines. Best of luck with getting this republished and out to a wider audience.
What a marvellous article, may Jack Hiltons book soon be available.
What a fascinating article! Great to hear about this writer and the work done to bring his life and work back to attention.
Excellent piece! Well done! Where can I get a copy of the book? Lois
