Anthony Burgess's Manchester

To celebrate the reopening of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, take a look at Burgess’s identity as a Mancunian.


Anthony Burgess left Manchester in 1940 and returned only occasionally thereafter. Yet the city of Manchester and its people appear many times in Burgess’s writing — Manchester accents, landmarks, and even smells pervade his literary work.


Join the International Anthony Burgess Foundation as they explore Manchester through the eyes of Burgess with images, film and audio recording.
