Product description

Review

'A kind of epic poem, one that moves in circular fashion from passionate denunciation to intense autobiographical reflection ... should be required reading for every MP, peer, councillor, civil servant and commentator. The fury and sense of powerlessness that so many people feel at government policy beam out of every page.' Melissa Benn, Guardian 'Smith's unwavering will to turn things around makes for inspirational reading.' Big Issue North 'Mr Smith's is a rousing, earthy writing that's part Tony Harrison, part Dennis Skinner' NudgeMeNow.com 'This hymn of wrath against the toxic nexus of money and power in austerity UK from a Bradford pauper's son, excommunicated from the Catholic church for marrying an "enemy" woman in post-war Germany, is a compelling life-verdict.' Paul Routledge, The Tablet ---
