Down and Dirty in Sheffield
(Abdelkader Benali) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2013, № 21, PP. 98-105
The Dutch writer Benali, staying in Sheffield to write about the city, visits the alcoholic inferno on a Saturday evening. According to Benali Sheffield on such a night is like carnival in Maastricht: everyone is dressed for an erotic danse macabre. Benali walks around astounded, confounded, trying to unravel the efficient and ruthless logic of local nightlife. Vaut le voyage.
