The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists in 2020
George Orwell said it was a book everyone should read.
Published in 1914, The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists, by Robert Tressell, detailed crushing poverty, squalor, and inequality in the UK. Cut to 2020, and Sophie and Scarlett Rickard have republished the book as a graphic novel, because, sadly, it’s as relevant today as it was back then.
The author and illustrator sisters join host Ross Ashcroft to explore why this classic book remains so relevant.
