SUMMARY ☆ Lowborn By Kerry Hudson CHARACTERS Lowborn By Kerry Hudson Cess to art music film and books But she often finds herself looking over her shoulder caught somehow between two worldsLowborn is Kerry’s exploration of where she came from revisiting the towns she grew up in to try to discover what being poor really means in Britain today and whether anything has changed She also journeys into the hardest regions of her own childhood because sometimes in order to move forwards we first have to look bac. I first heard Kerry talk at a Vintage Roadshow at Forum Books Corbridge before Christmas this didn t put me off though and I was really fascinated by the concept of LowbornEarlier this year I went to another Vintage Roadshow and was pleased to be able to pick up an advance copy of thisIt didn t disappoint It had me in tears angry upset sad but also laughing a lot due to the humour that came throughIt s taken me a while and a second reading well worth it to get my thoughts together to write this reviewThe voice in this book is so honest and due to my own past familiar Kerry writes about her past in some of the poorest communities in the UK growing up in a family that doesn t conform to the norms as seen in all the media that children consume and having to survive and hopefully grow from this Then once she has gotten out returning to explore emotions personal history and memoriesThere is a lot of wry humour in this book but by far it is the raw imagery of a past coloured by emotional and financial difficulties both systematic and familial that took me straight back to my own childhood and will have you fearful the child in the story and all the other children in stories like this all over the country nowThe return to these communities is a huge emotional commitment and again is approached with wry humour and introspection but also massive bravery It hurts to have to explore the past like thisIf you only read one book this month make sure it s this one you will be amply rewarded
