To the political left Hunter's people are the ignorant and the ill informed, to the victorious right they are the unwashed and discarded waste product of the labouring class. Chav Solidarity is part autobiography, part meditation on trauma, class and identity, part one finger salute into the face of respectability politics, but mostly an articulation of the contradictory ...more

This book is like a jump cable for your heart and mind. I want all the fellow middle class activist folk I know to read it, not so we can talk about it, but so we can collectively absorb the author's visceral understanding of the traumas that hierarchies of class, race and gender inflict on people with fewer choices in life. And so we can make our own better choices about how to be guided by people outside the middle class activist bubble.

A lot of what the author has experienced is horrifying.

This is a phenomenal and extremely eye-opening book.

It is about the author's experiences growing up in extreme poverty, and the development of their political ideas.

While the subject matter is often challenging, the book is written in an easy and unpretentious style so you can fly through it very quickly. It also avoids the voyeuristic sensationalism often employed in media discussing poverty.

High recommended. Seriously, read this thing as soon as you can.

This book is amazing. Very harrowing in some parts which made it difficult to read, but it's ultimately hopeful.
