Means-Test Man describes a week in the life of an unemployed Derbyshire miner
Means-Test Man describes a week in the life of an unemployed Derbyshire miner. Set in the 1930s and written by a miner out of his own bitter experience, it was one of the most powerful and original novels of that decade. It is tragic that Walter Brierley's portrayal should be highly topical in the 21st century as the number of jobless grows relentlessly. In 1939 the Daily Herald carried a piece by John G. O'Leary, the chief librarian for Dagenham, complaining about the state of public libraries.
Walter Brierley (1900–1972) was an English novelist active in the 1930s and one of the Birmingham Group of writers. His first book Means Test Man has been called one of the most powerful and original novels of that decade. Born in Waingroves, Derbyshire, to a family of miners, Brierley left school at 13 and started work at the local colliery.
