Thumbs down Yorkshire?

There's a book called 'Molly and the Muslim Stick' (amazon link here). Here's the first line of the prologue:

"Molly is raised in the harsh surroundings of Accrington, Yorkshire, during the years leading up to World War Two."

A mistake on Amazon's product description? Or an author without an atlas?

I've seen that before, on service papers of WW1 soldiers, turns out there was or is a place called Accrington in Yorkshire, somewhere near Hull.

May be, but I did write.
"there was or is a place called Accrington in Yorkshire, somewhere near Hull", WW1, ie 1914-1919. I've seen it more than once on WW1 service records.

Re: Yorkshire?

Yeah in the Amazon blurb for the book it says "we enter an absurdist narrative peopled with talking animals, demented prophets, shape-shifting ghosts, Amerindian asylum seekers and a Muslim walking stick."

Definitely Yorkshire.

Did you buy that line off Bob Monkhouse? If you did you were done, both he and it died years ago.
