Summary
Told from the perspectives of four different Londoners, Leah, Felix, Keisha (later Natalie) and Nathan, each of whom was raised in a northwest London housing project and chronicling their lives since, some journeying far from their childhoods, others who are struggling just to survive.
Critique
Beautifully written, with various writing styles and forms, as well as fascinating voices that make you think about identity, class and race.
