What do Richard Whiteley, Gareth Gates, cricketer Jim Laker, the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo and Harry Corbett, inventor of Sooty, have in common? They are all children of Bradford and they all feature in Derek Lister's collection of mini-biographies telling the stories of the city's finest, past and present. Bringing together the extraordinary lives of those who were born or lived in Bradford, this book includes sportmen, poets, musicians, actors, politicians, scientists, doctors, soldiers, clergymen, artists and novelists. It features international film stars, war artists, inventors, and members of parliament. From actor and comedian Adrian Edmondson to champion jockey Joe Mercer, and from singer Tasmin Archer to TV's Harry Gration, 119 people are profiled in this fascinating new book
