GENERATION F is an astonishing book – and the first to reveal the unvarnished truth about life in Britain’s children’s care homes and supported housing projects.
WINSTON SMITH spends his working day wrestling with the problems of damaged youngsters, violent thugs and teenage criminals.
He is confronted at every turn by irresponsible parents, incompetent police officers and pointless (though very expensive) bureaucracy.
His writing is controversial, angry and edgy, and it made him the runaway winner of the 2010 ORWELL PRIZE for his shocking, dramatic and revealing blog – the judges praised his ‘directness and clarity’, and his ‘passion and conviction’ that we ‘should know what wrongs had been done in our names in some of those places where most of us choose not to look’.
The Daily Mail and The Guardian, among others, ran large pieces by him.
