James Walton is a Wigan lad through-and-through, and this shines bright in this very special debut chapbook.
Containing poetry all about Wigan life - from food to family, football pitches to pie barms - James' inimitable style will pull you in from the very first line. It's funny, it's clever, it's chips and gravy with a pie barm and a side of pey wet for good measure.
Written phonetically in an instantly-recognisable Lancashire accent and dialect, Beltin' is a whistle-stop tour through the life of a working class lad from the North.
