    The Manchester Man Summary À 106 The Manchester ManA curiosity but a page turner Written in the 1870s it has an authentic voice Here's another heroic Manchester cotton lord this time with his story told from babyhood he is plucked from the flooded river by poor but honest Manchester working folk and brought up as a foundling Please don't expect another John Thornton this protagonist is a bit of a prig and the way he gets the girl is fraught with awkward uestions This novel is a weird mixture a sort of picaresue episodic narrative but with a definite story arc On the way there are some extraordinary contrasts this is part Sun

    The Manchester Man Summary À 106 The Manchester ManI'd picked this book up by chance and read it on a whim and I'm glad I did In many ways the main narrative takes second place to the finely detailed and nicely depicted scene setting A nodding acuaintance with Lancashire dialect is useful but by no means essential

    The Manchester Man Summary À 106 The Manchester ManRead a free electronic copy which was spoilt somewhat by being riddled with errors but it was an interesting book It features Jabez Clegg living in Manchester I was aware of the Jabez Clegg pub but hadn't realised he was a character in this novel and tells the story of his life in Manchester's cotton industry
