  • Brian Groom two-book deal with Harper North

    19 Sep 2022

    HarperNorth have bought World English rights to the next two books by Brian Groom, author of the bestselling Northerners: A History, from the Ice Age to the Present Day.

    The first book, Mancunians, due to be published in May 2024, will tell the story of the people who built the “shock city” of the Industrial Revolution and the impact they have had on the world. Like Northerners, it will combine historical narrative with social and cultural themes and colourful portraits of personalities, famous or not, involved in the story. It will examine Manchester’s past and present and the role it can play in Britain’s future.

    A second book, with the working title These Isles, is due to be published in May 2025. It will tell the story of the relationship between the peoples of England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and other parts of the British and Irish isles.

    Both books will draw on the Stretford-born author’s more than four decades as a journalist specialising largely in the archipelago’s regions and nations. Northerners, which has been a Times number three bestseller in hardback non-fiction, is also published by HarperNorth.
