Book after book after book

Books by Selina Todd (she’s a historian):

Young Women, Work, and Family in England, 1918-1950, Oxford University

Winner, Women’s History Network Book Prize ‘Young women emerge in this history as a critically important force…When we imagine a typical interwar worker, it isn’t as a bob-haired 14-year-old shop assistant wearing her first pair of heels’. LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS 

The People. The Rise and Fall of the Working Class, 1910-2010 2014Book of the Year in Observer and Guardian; one of David Kynaston’s Books of the Year; one of only three history books by women to be a bestseller in 2014. Now translated into Japanese, Korean, Catalan and Spanish.


Tastes of Honey: the making of Shelagh Delaney and a cultural revolution is published in late August 2019. Stuart Maconie says it’s ‘smart’, David Hare that it’s ‘riveting’ and Ken Loach that it captures a ‘vital cultural and social moment’.


Oxford would be bonkers to fire someone like that, but we live in bonkers times.
