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

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 * 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 * 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 * 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 * Explosive, funny and insightful ... You have to read it * Stylist *
