Book description
Working-class stories are not
always tales of the underprivileged and dispossessed.



Common People is a collection of essays,
poems and memoir written in celebration, not apology: these are narratives rich
in barbed humour, reflecting the depth and texture of working-class life, the
joy and sorrow, the solidarity and the differences, the everyday wisdom and
poetry of the woman at the bus stop, the waiter, the hairdresser.



Here, Kit de Waal brings
together thirty-three established and emerging writers who invite you to
experience the world through their eyes, their voices loud and clear as they
reclaim and redefine what it means to be working class.

Features original pieces from Damian Barr, Malorie Blackman, Lisa Blower, Jill Dawson, Louise Doughty, Stuart Maconie, Chris McCrudden, Lisa McInerney, Paul McVeigh, Daljit Nagra, Dave O'Brien, Cathy Rentzenbrink, Anita Sethi, Tony Walsh, Alex Wheatle and more.
