Rife: Twenty-One Stories from Britain's Youth (Paperback)

£9.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Young people in this country are facing a chasm of doubt and instability. Mental health problems are widespread, university fees are rising, job opportunities are drying up, and the prospect of ever owning a home is increasingly out of reach. But this generation is noticeably absent from the opinion columns, comment pieces and news reports of the mainstream media.



From the creative minds behind Rife magazine comes this anthology of twenty passionate voices, all under the age of twenty-four, writing across a spectrum of topics that matter to them. It holds a mirror up to the experience of young people in the UK today, with essays on money, mental health, sex, gender, inequality, education, crime and the future.



Bracing, honest and set against what can often seem an apocalyptic backdrop, these stories are nevertheless full of ideas and solidarity to draw on through these uncertain times.

Nikesh Shukla is the author of the novels Coconut Unlimited, which was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, Meatspace and The One Who Wrote Destiny. He is also the editor of The Good Immigrant, a bestselling and award-winning collection of essays about race and immigration by twenty-one writers of colour. He lives in Bristol.
