Short biography
Jack Hilton was a British novelist, essayist, and travel writer. His work often depicted working-class people and environments, especially those of northern England. Born into a working-class family, Hilton worked as a plasterer and was an active member of the plasterer’s union and the National Unemployed Workers’ Movement. After attending classes with the Workers Educational Association, he published his first book, the autobiographical Caliban Shrieks, in 1935. Hilton then attended Ruskin College, and eventually published a number of both fiction and nonfiction texts. He was acquainted with fellow working-class author Jack Common, socialist literary editor John Middleton Murray, and George Orwell.
