Debut collection: Precarious takes questions of masculinity, class, mental health and work head on, issues that many people, especially men and boys, find difficult to address. Rosa Luxembourg, Orgreave, 11+  failures, tic-tac men, a priest from central casting and a man who only eats sandwiches – it’s a book about precarious times, hard lessons and fragile lives, a defiant celebration of British working-class life and the people ‘who make the wheels go round’, provocative, funny, poignant and bloody angry.


‘A set of rollicking dispatches from a Britain rarely ever heard from except in the disparaging tones of others. Peter Raynard details the toll this exacts on all of us with a rare, almost brutal frankness.’
