Paperback / softback

Description

'Brilliant, horrifying and really f***ing funny' KATHY BURKE'Give[s] powerful voice to the often silent story that explains so much of Britain's current fracturing' OBSERVERI'm a scrounger, a liar, a hypocrite, a stain on society with no basic morals - or so they say.

After all, what else do you call a working-class single mum in temporary accommodation?Skint Estate is the darkly funny debut memoir from Cash Carraway, a scream against austerity that rises full of rage in a landscape of sink estates, police cells, refuges and peepshows. A voice that must be heard. 'Cash's brutal honesty will leave you wanting to make a change, stand up and be heard.

A must-read' VICKY McCLURE'Extraordinary ... Bursts with energy, wit and anger' KEN LOACH'The new voice of a generation' THE TIMES'Astonishingly brilliant ...

Raw, gut-wrenching and immensely moving' RUTH JONES'A fascinating, shocking look at poverty and motherhood' BILLIE PIPER'A howl of rage ...

I loved it' THE IRISH TIMES'The definition of edgy' LIONEL SHRIVER
