We are proud to launch Brian W. Lavery‘s The Luckiest Thirteen, a companion to our bestelling The Headscarf Revolutionaries

The early word on The Luckiest Thirteen from some of Hull’s finest writers:

Headscarf educated me, enticed me and brought back many a memory of my grandparents. Beautiful read.’

Gemma Oaten

It’s bloody brilliant. An emotional story captured beautifully. Go buy it!

Vicky Foster

‘Brian W Lavery brings a journalist’s eye for detail to a superbly realised tale of courage, loss and exceptional bravery. The Luckiest Thirteen is an important book, powerful, heartbreaking and triumphant.’

David Mark

An epic tale of bravery & loss told with an unerring eye for detail & a boatload of compassion. Buy this brilliant book.

Russ Litten

With the novelist’s eye for drama and the historian’s eye for detail, no one writes Hull’s recent history like Brian Lavery.

Nick Quantrill

A true-life drama of an intense battle for survival on the high seas.

Foreword by Alan Johnson.  ‘Brian W Lavery’s deep knowledge and understanding of the men of the Hessle Road community who fished – and the incredibly strong women who waited, worked and grieved – has been displayed in The Headscarf Revolutionaries. Now he tells a different story, one as gripping as any I heard during my twenty years representing what is now the ex-fishing community of west Hull. It’s told with eloquence and empathy, displaying again the filmic quality that makes Brian W Lavery’s writing so special.’
