Who does not envy with us is against us is a new book of essays by Maria Fusco, published by Broken Sleep Books, an independent working-class press in Wales.
This special event will feature a reading by Maria, and a conversation with Thomas Abercromby about the ideas, issues and propositions raised in the book.
Praise for the book:
“I love this book with my entire life and beyond… a testament to Fusco’s analytic and lyric genius, and her ability to move and affect. Fusco mobilises a previously unnamed mood shared by the international, intergalactic working classes, I’ve never seen anything like it. Read this book.”
— Isabel Waidner, Corey Fah Does Social Mobility
