With an introduction by John King
Set over three days in the 1930s, May Day follows the fortunes of a broad range of characters as social unrest bubbles over in the East End and spreads across London. First published in 1936, the events driving this fluent and imaginative novel – mass anger at politicians and big business, speed-ups and wage cuts, protests and marches – could easily describe Britain today.
