Shelagh Delaney

Salfordian writer Shelagh Delaney, 71, died on Sunday after battling with cancer. There then came the tranche of obituaries proclaiming her debut work, A Taste of Honey. I wrote a piece on the Guardian's CiF today, drawing on my well-worn themes of class and literature. I ask where are all the equivalents today, for there's just as much to portray - just as much to get riled up about - just as much to get all dramatic over.
