9781849538114: Pier Review: A Road Trip in Search of the Great British Seaside

Fifty-five piers. Two weeks. One eccentric road trip. Before the seaside of their youth disappears forever, two friends from the landlocked Midlands embark on a peculiar journey to see all the surviving pleasure piers in England and Wales. With a clapped-out car and not enough cash, Jon and Danny recruit Midge, a man they barely know, to be their driver, even though he has to be back in a fortnight to sign on. Join Jon and Danny as they take a funny and nostalgic look at Britishness at the beach, amusement in the arcades, and friendship on the road.

Jon Bounds has written for the Birmingham Post, Fused, and the Guardian, and has appeared as a cultural commentator on Radio 4. Danny Smith has written for ViceFused, and Area magazines. He’s worked the bars and doors of some of the roughest pubs in Birmingham, sold encyclopedias in the Australian outback, and taught gang kids from the ghettos of New Jersey how to shoot a bow and arrow.
