Reviews

  • "Explosive, funny and insightful ... You have to read it"

  • "Visceral, high-octane prose, a cocktail of Irvine Welsh and Charles Bukowski with a splash of feminist polemic ... Skint Estate is a full-throttle dispatch from the front line of the war against the poor."

  • "Cash Carraway's unique voice, filled in equal measure with rage and inspiration, tells a story of hope amongst state violence. Brilliant and compelling"

  • "This is a raw, painful, funny book. And it rings true. Cash Carraway is a real writer, who shares her extraordinary story with a developing sense of politics. Her writing bursts with energy, wit and anger - it might be too strong for the Radio4 Book of the Week, but it is essential reading."

  • "What an astonishingly brilliant memoir. I’m speechless. So beautifully, passionately written without a shred of self-pity and brim full of this unbreakable mother daughter Love at the heart of it all... Raw, gut-wrenching and immensely moving."
