Bit of a classic, I'll be reading it for the first time!

'The first great English novel about the class war, The Ragged Trousered
Philanthropists is spiked, witty, humorous, instructive and full of
excitement, harmony and pathos.' Alan Sillitoe 'Some books seem to
batter their way to immortality against all the odds, by sheer brute
artistic strength, and high up in this curious and honourable company
must be counted The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. Robert Tressell's
unfailing humour mixes with an unfailing rage and the two together make a
truly Swiftian impact.' Evening Standard Robert Tressell has complete
familiarity with the idiom of his characters. His language is bizarre,
vital, highly inventive and precisely heard -- it is a complete and
living archaeology of the speech of a particular human group. A
brilliant and very funny book.' Spectator
