'Brilliant, horrifying and really f***ing funny' KATHY BURKE

Skint Estate Summary

Skint Estate: Notes from the Poverty Line by Cash Carraway

'Brilliant, horrifying and really f***ing funny' KATHY BURKE

'Give[s] powerful voice to the often silent story that explains so much of Britain's current fracturing' OBSERVER

I'm a scrounger, a liar, a hypocrite, a stain on society with no basic morals - or so they say. After all, what else do you call a working-class single mum in temporary accommodation?

Skint Estate is the darkly funny debut memoir from Cash Carraway, a scream against austerity that rises full of rage in a landscape of sink estates, police cells, refuges and peepshows.
A voice that must be heard.

'Cash's brutal honesty will leave you wanting to make a change, stand up and be heard. A must-read' VICKY McCLURE

'Extraordinary ... Bursts with energy, wit and anger' KEN LOACH

'The new voice of a generation' THE TIMES

'Astonishingly brilliant ... Raw, gut-wrenching and immensely moving' RUTH JONES

'A fascinating, shocking look at poverty and motherhood' BILLIE PIPER

'A howl of rage ... I loved it' THE IRISH TIMES

'The definition of edgy' LIONEL SHRIVER

Skint Estate Reviews

Explosive, funny and insightful ... You have to read it * Stylist *
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. * Morning Star *
Cash Carraway's unique voice, filled in equal measure with rage and inspiration, tells a story of hope amongst state violence. Brilliant and compelling. * Anna Minton *
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. * Ken Loach *
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. * Ruth Jones *
