This is an absolutely epic overview of Bristol culture – literary connections, film, music, gossip and much more since WW2. That’s around seven decades’ worth. You need to read it on an electronic device for two reasons: first, it’s an e-book; second, you will find yourself checking search engines, wikis, and music sites on every other page.
In the words of the author, Nick Gilbert:
“On Brandon Hill is the first ever comprehensive history of post-war Bristolian culture, and covers all the major art forms for which the city is famous – music, TV, animation, street art – as well as its contributions to film, theatre, literature, fine art etc. First-hand accounts by the author and a gurt big dollop of West Country humour are woven into a gigantic cultural tapestry.”
