"In July 2016, a little over a month after the Brexit vote, Nikesh Shukla, the man behind The Good Immigrant, tweeted:Know Your Place Is a collection of essays about the working class, written by the working class. The final contributors are:
Someone should do a Good Immigrant-style state of the nation book of essays by writers from working class backgrounds.
Our immediate reply was:
We would publish the crap out of that.
Well, here we are – Know Your Place is that book. In the year it has taken us to collect these essays the book seems to be needed now more than ever.
We had an open call for writers to submit essays on the lived experience of being working class in the UK today. We were overwhelmed with interest from people wanting to contribute to the book and aimed to choose twenty essays for the final book. In the end we finally managed to whittle it down to twenty-two essays that we felt were not only brilliantly written, but offered unique and fascinating views on working class life. "
