Undercurrent : shortlisted for the Nero Book Awards 2023 by Natasha Carthew

9781399706513

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE NERO BOOK AWARDS 2023*'A powerful story of social inequality' RAYNOR WINNTo grow up in rural poverty is to fight for life before you can walk. Natasha Carthew was born into a world that sat alongside picture-postcard Cornwall - one where second homes took the sea view of council properties, summer months shifted the course of people's lives, and wealth converged with poverty on sandy beaches.

In the rockpools and hedgerows of the natural world, Natasha found solace in the wild landscape, and a means of escape in her mobile library. In Undercurrent she retraces the cliff paths of her childhood, determined to make sense of an upbringing shaped by political neglect and a life defined by the beauty of nature.
