    Nicky Allt
The Culture of Capital brings together a fascinating new collection of short stories from acclaimed author and playwright Nicky Allt about what it means to live in his home city of Liverpool. Covering late-twentieth-century terrain as diverse as a night spent watching The Clash perform at Liverpool?s legendary Eric?s club to the bleak tale of an unemployed builder intimidated by a local drug baron, Allt's writing submerses the reader in the great Liverpudlian themes of music, sport, humor, and exceptionalism. Using the city's status as the European Capital of Culture in 2008 as a prism through which we might understand contemporary Liverpool, this sometimes poignant, sometimes acerbic, but always compelling collection will be required reading for anyone interested in the culture and creativity of this memorable city.
