Common People

Tue 5 Feb 2019

Novelist Kit de Waal and publisher Unbound brought together 33 contributors to share their experiences growing up working-class through essays, poems and memoir. The resulting book, Common People, is a response to their belief that the people working in and creating our culture are not representative of our nation’s demographics. 

Contributors to the book include Malorie Blackman OBE, Louise Doughty and Alex Wheatle, alongside South East writers Damian Barr, Katy Massey and Astra Bloom.
