WOT CHEOR GEORDIE! by Gordon Simpson. Published by the author. Available on Kindle (£1.99) and Amazon Books (£5.99). Softback.

SET in the early 1950s, this fictional tale follows the hilarious exploits and adventures of Geordie Thompson, whose world revolves around Newcastle – anywhere outside its boundaries is a ‘foreign country’. His naivety and uncompromising attitude leave a trail of confusion, embarrassment and distress in his wake.
