We welcome the brilliantly original and critically acclaimed Sally Bayley, a literary story of working class childhood, absent or broken men and the power of literature to save and rebuild a world. In her latest book, she explores the men missing from her childhood - because they were drunk, or out of work, or in prison, or wandering. Or missing because their behaviour had provoked women to ban them from the house. But the man who was around for Sally was Shakespeare, and he brought men with him to fill the gaps. Inventive, literary and adventurous, this is a story of poverty, missing fathers, sons and a testament to the way that great literature and its characters can guard an imagination against the bad. Talking to Nicky Cox.
