All the Way Home: 30 Years of Rock Trust by Various
Celebrating 30 years of Rock Trust, Scotland’s only charity committed to tackling youth homelessness, All the Way Home is an anthology of poetry and prose by both young people and established writers which interrogates ideas of ‘home’ and ‘homelessness’ from a variety of perspectives. Contributors include Val McDermid, James Robertson and Scabby Queen author Kirstin Innes.
Across poetry, fiction and personal accounts, the idea of ‘home’ is explored from a variety of perspectives: a thirteen year-old girl comes to terms with her unplanned pregnancy; a group of immigrants from all across the world meet at a weekly Creative Writing class in Glasgow to discuss haiku; a new mother suffering from post-natal depression makes a life-altering decision. Together, this astonishing collection brings to life both the visible and invisible realities of home and homelessness, of family and belonging.
