"Whether writing about football or Belgium, allotments, or orang-utans, Nell Farrell shows us the world in moments of compassion and epiphany. This collection positively hums with the stubbornness of life."
Nell Farrell grew up in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, and loves sharing her birthplace with D H Lawrence. She has since lived in Hull, France, York and Liverpool but has now lived in Sheffield longer than anywhere else. She works in social work education and as a creative writing tutor. Her pamphlet The Wrong Evangeline was published by Panshine Press in 2003 and she is one of the authors of Some Girls' Mothers (Route 2009).
