Hear Emma Purshouse read from her debut novel, Dogged! Set in the city, Dogged is the story of two working-class women in their 70s. Funny, warm, dark, and beautifully written, the novel has received rave reviews and has been described as "unputdownable".

Emma is a working-class performance poet and writer, and the current poet laureate of the City of Wolverhampton. She was part of the 'Common People' anthology, edited by Kit de Waal, and is also part of Portopia which is a brand-new writer development project set up to increase working-class representation in screenwriting.
