'Pithy and provoking, spiced with the personal but solidly grounded in a lifetime's experience. One of those valuable books that enables the reader to re-think her past and re-experience her own life'
– Hilary Mantel
For December we are delighted to bring you Respectable. Lynsey Hanley grew up part of the 'respectable working class'. At university, she discovered that social mobility is not all it seems. This book is about what it means to cross class divides, what we leave behind in order to get on, and how class affects all of us today.
Due to the fact that the UK has left the EU, we're experiencing some problems with post to the EU, especially with post to Sweden. Please be aware that if you are an EU-based subscriber, you may have to pay extra charges to receive your book. We're really sorry. This is a massive problem for many UK-based small organisations such as ourselves. If you have problems receiving your books please let us know.
