“This is a joyous, exuberant book about working class oppression. This may seem like a contradiction in terms but read the rich variety within its covers, and discover how important it is to sing out against the silencing of working class culture.” Diane Reay Book description: “At a moment when working class culture seems to have been overtaken by issues of national identity, this book comes as a timely reminder of where the roots of most of the UK’s population lie. It is brought to life by Stefan Szczelkun’s own recollections of his post-war upbringing and insightful observations on the significance of music, singing, amateur film and other popular forms as cultural expression of this much vilified though predominant social class. Creatively presented as a collage of ideas, references and images, this book is as much visual artefact as rigorous research, and makes for an intriguing and engaging reading experience.” Lorraine Leeson Every page in colour in an attractive zine style of collage. Book data: 165 x 165mm 105 gsm paper, standard colour. 84pp perfect binding. Illustrations: 30+
