Sold Out Kerry Hudson & Sarah Smarsh

Working Class Lives

Two writers revisit their experiences of working class life in Britain and the US. In Lowborn, prize-winning Scottish writer Kerry Hudson returns to the poverty-stricken towns of her youth to discover what being poor means today, while Heartland by Sarah Smarsh is a touching memoir on the destitution of Kansas farming life and 'being broke in the richest country on Earth'. Hear two honest takes on wealth inequality.
