Welcome to Broadwater Farm, one of the most well-known housing estates in Britain. A place where post-war dreams of concrete utopia ended in riots, violence and sub-standard housing.
In this collection, Tottenham-born Jac Shreeves-Lee gives voice to the people of Broadwater Farm. With evocative language and raw storytelling, she compassionately portrays their shared sense of community. A community with a rich cultural heritage, comprising over forty nationalities, generations old.
'The truth and humour in this intensely fine and lyrical short story collection shines a light that is ultimately uplifting.' - Martina Evans, poet and novelist; 'A voyage both unforgettable and searing.' - Onjali Q. Rauf, activist and author of 'The Boy at the Back of the Class'; 'The beauty is in the complex reality of every day, summed up in skillfully written prose.' - Dawn Ferdinand, Headteacher at The Willow Primary School and Broadwaters' Children's Centre
