‘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’ OBSERVER
I’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.
