Criminology lecturer contributes to new ‘ground-breaking’ anthology

Laura Bui, Lecturer in Criminology, is one of twenty-two writers to be featured in 'Test Signal', an anthology of contemporary writing from the North of England. It will be published in July 2021 by Dead Ink Books and Bloomsbury.

Laura's piece, ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’, explores the enduring and sometimes ridiculed interest in spirits and ghosts. It draws from her time in Japan researching youth crime and the experiments of the late criminologist and psychiatrist Donald West.

Test Signal and the context from which it arises are described as: ‘The North is at the forefront of new writing. Home to some of the most ground-breaking authors writing today, a thriving independent publishing scene and many vibrant grass-roots networks, the North is driving a revolution in new literature. This anthology is a showcase of some of the best new talent in the North. Some of them are well-known established names, others are newcomers; all of them are part of the new northern writing scene.’

You can pre-order a copy of Test Signal at bookshop.org.

The Bookseller has reported further information about the anthology.
