Writing Liverpool

Patrick Williams

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines James Hanley's The Furys. Published in 1935, The Furys was the first part of a series of five novels charting the lives of the Furys, a Liverpool-Irish family. Unlike Hanley's other novels that concentrated on life on board a ship, The Furys is set entirely on land, though ships remain an important dimension – past, present, and future – of the life of the Fury family. It also includes some militant working-class action, in the shape of a strike that paralyses Gelton (Hanley's fictionalized Liverpool) for several weeks.

Keywords:   Irish family, Liverpool, working-class action, strike
