Liverpool is a city of ghosts. Through the centuries, millions have lived here or come to find a new life, and found safe harbor. More than any other city in Britain its history resonates in the buildings, landscape and stories that have seeped into the lives of its inhabitants. In Ghost Town, Jeff Young takes us on a journey through the Liverpool of his childhood - down back alleys, through arcades, into vanished tenements and oyster bars, strip-tease pubs and theatres. We watch as he turns from schoolboy truant into an artist obsessed with Kafka, Terence Davies and The Fall. Along the way he conjures ghosts and puts hexes on the developers who've ruined the city of his dreams.
