'Pithy and provoking, spiced with the personal' Hilary Mantel
Lynsey Hanley grew up part of the 'respectable working class'. At university, she discovered that social mobility is not all it seems. This book is about what it means to cross class divides, what we leave behind in order to get on, and how class affects all of us today.
'There is fury contained within the pages and between the lines of Respectable ... intelligent and important' Colin Grant, Guardian
'Honest, brave and moving' Kate Pickett, co-author of The Spirit Level
'Lynsey Hanley is such a crucial voice. When she writes about class, she is writing about lived experience' Owen Jones, New Statesman
'Hanley vividly describes the "risky, lonely journey" she undertook from one class to another ... She is tremendous at detailing her personal transition' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. From the author of Estates- An Intimate History, a powerful, highly personal take on social mobility in BritainSociety is often talked about as a ladder, from which you can climb from bottom to top. The walls are less talked about. This book is about how people try to get over them, whether they manage to or not.In autumn 1992, growing up on a vast Birmingham estate, the sixteen-year-old Lynsey Hanley went to sixth-form college. She knew that it would change her life, but was entirely unprepared for the price she would have to pay- to leave behind her working-class world and become middle class. In this empathic, wry and passionate exploration of class in Britain today, Lynsey Hanley looks at how people are kept apart, and keep themselves apart - and the costs involved in the journey from 'there' to 'here'.
