Know Your Place: Essays on the Working Class by the Working Class

Know Your Place

Know Your Place: Essays on the Working Class by the Working Class is crowdfunding on Kickstarter now.

In less than three days it has overtaken the halfway mark of Dead Ink’s target. The book asks various working class writers to reflect on aspects of their lived experience as it relates to the UK’s class system. There are 22 essays in total, with contributions from Kit De Waal, Andrew McMillan, Yvonne Singh, Kate Fox, Catherine O’Flynn, Lee Rourke and Sam Mills. Topics covered include food, sexuality, music, accents and mental health. The Editor, Nathan Connolly, has described the book as a “cultural response to a populism that is left at the feet of the working class without giving them a voice in return – making them scapegoats.”
