Anthony Cartwright's fourth novel, Iron Towns, weaves the industrial and football history of an invented valley in the midlands with legends from British myth and the story of five friends whose bright futures lie in the past. The central character, Liam Corwen, plays out his days as captain of historic Iron Town FC, while having a history of football tattooed on his body. Like Cartwright's previous three Dudley-set novels (The Afterglow, Heartland and How I Killed Margaret Thatcher) Iron Towns is inspired by the Black Country, the place and the people, past and present.
