The Casual Vacancy It s depiction of chav existence is merged with the aspirational societies which has underpinned the refiguration of class in Britain since the late 1970s.It follows Kez for just over a decade of her life and the social turbulence that is her childhood Made to sell drugs to local school children, Kez is sent to a youth offenders organisation her mother abandons her and little brother Jon and latterly she becomes involved in the murder of an outreach worker and a police officer While on the one hand The Killing Jar outlines the difficulty writers of class fiction now face they must, it seems, depict the ostensibly gritty and appalling realities of working class existence Yet, on the other hand, the novel highlights the cultural politics of Britain in the early twenty first century Asking questions such as what can the working class be today , the novel subtly points towards the difficulties of contemporary Britain for the working class we must be, either, disgusting or we must sell out and capitulate to ideas of aspiration, eschewing our class backgrounds The novel, I think, moves between these two points It is static and unfixed, flitting between popular ideas of what working class writing should be as well as pointing out the ways in which contemporary politics has constructed the working class in it s contempt for it With it s string voice and wonderful employment of Nottingham dialect it is a thoroughly brilliant novel A must read for anyone interested in working class writing today Just look at this cover It has a pretty girl and a

and I d never thought much of it I looked at the baby, his mouth open and tongue wriggling as he screamed I noticed he used his whole body to cry with Looking back now, I wonder why the nurses didn t give him a bit of methadone or summat to help him out but they let him go cold turkey instead What a way to come into the world Never stood a chance, our Jon So, Vintage Books dot Co dot Uk, I actually love ya, but this cover is a serious case of false advertising I know there is this rule in publishing that anything written by a woman needs a cute cover, otherwise other women would panic and wouldn t buy it, and I know that there technically was a butterfly in the book, but for God s sake Alex Wheatle s books get way better covers and his stuff is not half as grim as The Killing Jar Yeah, it s called the KILLING JAR The butterflies on the cover should be DEAD.Ok, rant over This book was actually quite awesome.It should be a recommended read for all judgemental people, Tory MPs, Mitt Romney, and everybody else who feels just a little too smug about themselves.Kerry Ann, the narrator, is smart, funny, sarcastic, angry, soft, hard, sometimes out of control, just as you have to be to survive on an estate and come out on the right side against all odds.Nicola Monaghan creates a voice that s psychologically deep with prose that s beautiful without compromising the authenticity of the character and which tells a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat By the time Kerry Ann is fourteen, she has already been through things someone her age shouldn t even watch on tv And there sto come Don t get it twisted, though, the book isn t just some poverty porn style piling up of gruesome events to get you teary eyed Far from it It does make you emotional, of course, butimportantly, it makes you understand Ten points for social determinism.The downside of reading The Killing Jar is that you might want to try ecstasy and start writing could of and should of.Still, I d say read it, even you don t normally go for things with pretty girls and butterflies on the cover.Here, I have a perfect video for this book This story is gritty, painfully realistic, sad, uncompromising and hard hitting.It is the story of Kerrie Ann Hill, a young girl forced to survive in a world dominated by drugs from the day she was born.It is set on a housing estate in Nottingham, England She lives with her mother and brother to start with and she tells her tale shedding and adding people as we go along.This is written in the voice of Kerrie Ann so if you struggle with local
