Having cast aside her smartphone, the playwright and Skint Estate author loves to dip in and out of books on the go. From modern classics such as Norman Mailer to a debut from the Suede bassist, here’s what’s been in her bag lately.
Depression. Welfare cuts. Zero-hour contracts. Gnawing-at-your-stomach hunger. Writer, playwright and spoken-word artist Cash Carraway has experienced it all. She talks the terrifying reality of what it’s like to live through no-way-out austerity, and the degradation of being silenced.
Cash Carraway is an award-winning playwright, author and screenwriter from London. In 2018 she was nominated for a British Journalism Award and won ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the 2019 Drum Online Media Awards. Skint Estate is her first book.
