Wickham’s marriage had dissolved and so had his cushy job as a writer and academic at an Australian university.

At the urging of his friend, Steve, he went to Angeles in the Philippines, the so-called sex capital of the archipelago, to join the band of ex-pats, seen by locals and outsiders as “white trash” drifting among the fleshpots of Asia. But there was a price to be paid. Wickham had to pen a feature story about the Yank, an American who had crossed the line and turned Angeles into a paedophile paradise. “Sin city” was provocatively raunchy before but now, thanks to the Yank, it was cri...

British White Trash Book Description :

"White trash" is a liminal figure that dramatizes the intersection of race and class. Contemporary British novelists like Irvine Welsh, Niall Griffiths and John King use this originally US-American stereotype to interrogate the racializing discourse of class in British society. Their novels are interdiscursive reflections of the figurations of race and class that still haunt the British cultural imaginary. "British White Trash" is the first analysis to comprehensively examine the adaptation of the "white trash" stereotype in major British novels. The study thus contributes to a critical understanding of racism and classism, its cultural representations and its underlying social processes....
