Blue Collar by Danny King

Really unusual this: a romance written from the point of view of a builder.

The story plays with class, gently poking fun at middle-class preoccupations and lifestyles.

I couldn’t help feeling a little cynical about this one, as Terry (the builder in question) holds all those acceptable views attributed to the working classes by the middle class (you know: mild sexism, dislike of students, that sort of thing), but none of the unacceptable ones. It’s almost as though the book was carefully crafted to appeal to middle class sensibilities itself…

That said, it’s a thoroughly enjoyable romp through class stereotypes and the pitfalls of love across the class divide: Terry is riddled with uncertainties and wholly lovable.
