I'm a Stranger Here Myself
In 1990, spurred on by the success of his writing and his marriage to the writer Aileen Armitage,
Deric Longden made a momentous move to a foreign country - Huddersfield!
Huddersfield, with its distinctive manners and customs and its wealth of remarkable characters,
would surely provide him with all the material he needed for his planned book, one of the great
classics of travel literature. But two years later, when he sat down to write, the major events
of everyday life kept intruding: the demands of a houseful of cats, the problem of getting the
cooker repaired, the memories evoked by sorting through old clothes in the wardrobe ...
Once again Deric Longden demonstrates his genius for taking the most ordinary materials of life
and transforming them with his own special brand of gentle, inspired humour.
