All Together Now? by Mike Carter

In 1981, Mike Carter's dad organised the People's March for Jobs, which saw five hundred people walk from Liverpool to London in protest against unemployment. A month before the Brexit vote in 2016, Mike set off on the same route in a quest to better understand his dad and his country.

As he walked, what Mike discovered was a working class that felt betrayed, their livelihoods destroyed, their communities hollowed out. He found anger, but also hope and determination for change. And he discovered that he and his dad shared more in common than he might have thought.

All Together Now? is both the story of one man's journey, and that of an entire country. It is a book about belonging, about whether to stay or go, and about the need to write new stories for ourselves and our communities. Like The Road to Wigan Pier, All Together Now? seeks to grant a voice to those overlooked and unheard by Westminster politicians, and to expose the divisions and conflicts at the heart of our society, and our world.
