Zero Hours

Synopsis

When zero hours wages become the zero hours of our lives

In a post-Brexit Britain filled with low paid zero hours jobs a young man navigates the world through his writing and in doing so pens a bittersweet love song to Manchester.

A perfectly pitched short novel, a little gem of a book that goes beyond what the politicians have to say and gets to the real heart of post-Brexit Britain. The undercurrents of racism. Working in the post office depots and libraries.

A rant against social injustice that merges into a meditation on time.

In this second novel of his Manchester Trilogy, Campbell explores the supposed regeneration of Manchester, and life under the Tories, his young protagonist staying put while the aeroplanes fly overhead.
