Farsley: An evening with debut author Pip Fallow

May 28 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us in the shop to talk to debut author Pip Fallow about his compelling memoir, Dragged Up Proppa.

Pip Fellow left school illiterate, prepared only for a life down the mines. This is his story of working-class life in northern England, and the country that would leave people like him behind. Dragged Up Proppa marks the arrival of a major literary working-class voice that needs to be listened to.
Pip was born in the coal-miner’s cottage where his family of eight lived, in a village near Durham. Pip was destined to join his father down the pit, but the closure of his village’s mine in the 1980s saw him at the back of the dole queue like the rest.
This is Pip’s story of being ‘dragged up proppa’, living by his wits, working and travelling the world before finally settling a few miles from where he grew up
