For young Stephen Bottomley something died that night.
One Northern Soul follows the fortunes of this Leeds United fan as he comes of age in the dark days of the early eighties with no prospects, no guidance and to cap it all, his beloved football team suffer relegation to the Second Division.
This book is a reminder of a recent past and of connected fates. J R Endeacott has drawn a story that captures the mood of a time and a place, bottling the atmosphere of the terrace in its final days as disaster was about to strike and bring about wholesale and lasting change.
‘The book is so addictive you can almost smell the Eighties.’
