Lowborn: Growing Up, Getting Away And Returning To Britain’s Poorest Towns

Lowborn: Growing Up, Getting Away And Returning To Britain’s Poorest Towns

Kerry Hudson

What Douglas Stuart Says: This brave non-fiction book charts the experiences of the author. As Hudson revisits the hardships of her childhood, she does it with rare grace, and a desire to understand without anger or judgement. It’s always hard to write about growing up poor. It’s a delicate subject to capture without being perceived as condemning the circumstances or the other people who were present. But there is definitely a need to be honest about how brutally hard it is, how detrimental it is to children, and Hudson does this clearly and with well-considered feeling. 

What They Say: “Totally engrossing and deliciously feisty” – Bernardine Evaristo
