Book description
It is May 1926 and Joan Craig, a young trade union organizer, is addressing a group of Yorkshire miners, her passionate tones marshalling support for the General Strike, her persuasiveness underpinned by the poverty and deprivation around her. She attended the committee meeting at which the famous strike call was heard; now she travels the country moving from one platform to the next, snatching meals and sleep, careless of exhaustion, dedicated to the pursuit of justice. Seen through Joan's eyes, this stirring and evocative novel record the events of that fateful week and its aftermath - for the iniquities faced by the mining community continue long after the widespread clamour has ceased. A story of personal as well as political dilemmas, Clash is more than a fictional testament to a period in history: it reveals forceful parallels with Britain today.
