Two celebrated fiction writers who explore how our lives are shaped by the communities we're born into. In Lairies – a sensitive, brutal, brilliant read – disaffected youths in small-town Britain; in Keeping the House, inner-city estates, Turkish-Cypriot cabbage growers and drug runners. Both offer a fresh, funny take on the darker sides of British culture, community and belonging. With host Gary Budden, author and independent publisher at Influx Press.
