ROY MINTON - SCUM

45.00

First Edition

Published by Hutchinson, 1979

Roy Minton's contraversial television play, Scum, was comissioned by the BBC then suddenly withdrawn. The decision to veto caused violent reactions - from those who supported the censorship as well as those who felt outraged by the Establishment's ban. Here, Roy Minton rewrote the play as a novel, and for the first time, the public had the chance to make up its own mind. The work is an uncomprimising, often shocking and outspoken comment on the bleak, brutal world of a Borstal: a powerful story that tells the truth about the boys labelled 'Scum' - and the men they call 'Screws.'
