The vulnerable were still at the bottom of the heap, unheard. Without a stable home, without a steady income, without family support — how do you survive?
Scandals and conflicts obscured one of the most extraordinary achievements of the Space Age.
In Skint Estate , Cash has found her voice — loud, raw and cutting. This is a book born straight from life lived in Britain below the poverty line — a brutal landscape savaged by universal credit, zero-hours contracts, rising rents and public service funding cuts. Told with a dark lick of humour and two-fingers up to the establishment, Cash takes us on her isolated journey from council house childhood to single motherhood, working multiple jobs yet relying on food banks and temporary accommodation, all while skewering stereotypes of what it means to be working class.
Despite being beaten down from all angles, Cash clings to the important things — love for her daughter, community and friendships — and has woven together a highly charged, hilarious and guttural cry for change.
And it rings true. Cash Carraway is a real writer, who shares her extraordinary story with a developing sense of politics. 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' - Ruth Jones. Cash's brutal honesty will leave you wanting to make a change, stand up and be heard. A must read, and when you've read it pass it on ' — Vicky McClure.
