When right-wing populism is seemingly sweeping the west this whistle-stop tour demonstrates the power of people and provides a glimmer of hope and inspiration. --Big Issue North

As the book enters the 20th Century, the chapters become infused with an awareness of the inequalities and discrimination of our age, becoming a call to action. The variety of storytelling ensures that the protests don't feel indistinct or hopeless, yet the injustices described feel depressingly familiar. --The New Statesman

It would be heartening to see more works of historical fiction inspired by Comma Press's approach, serving both to educate and entertain by giving voice once again to people who struggled to make their voices heard in challenging circumstances. --Disclaimer Magazine
