Description

Unity Grill CIC will be holding their monthly Lets Talk About...This month it will be about Poverty Safari with it's author Darren McGarvey. This event is free to attend where you will have the opportunity to hear Darren discuss his book and answer any questions you may have.

People from deprived communities all around Britain feel misunderstood and unheard. Darren McGarvey aka Loki gives voice to their feelings and concerns, and the anger that is spilling over. Anger he says we will have to get used to, unless things change.

"Nothing less than an intellectual and spiritual rehab manual for the progressive left." - Irvine Welsh

"Part memoir, part polemic, this is a savage, wise and witty tour-de-force. An unflinching account of the realities of systemic poverty, Poverty Safari lays down challenges to both the left and right. It is hard to think of a more timely, powerful or necessary book." - J.K. Rowling

"A blistering analysis of the issues facing the voiceless and the social mechanisms that hobble progress, all wrapped up in an unput-downable memoir." - Denise Mina
