Cold Water Part One

Cold Water Part One: a drive from Macclesfield to central Manchester The Curiously Specific Book Club

This small gem of novel is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of early-noughties Manchester. In Part One we journey from Ian Curtis’s Macclesfield memorial stone to a basement bar somewhere between Oxford Road and Manchester Piccadilly. For Lloyd this is a bit of a homecoming. For Tim it’s a chance to practise his John Copper Clark and Mark E Smith impressions. For both men, it’s a fantastic introduction to the writer Gwendoline Riley’s world of love and loss, clowns and bullies, drunks and troubadours. And endless rain.If you want to hear our episodes without ads, as soon as they’re available, subscribe to our Patreon page.
