A presentation of The Bankruptcy Diaries, a new book by Paul Broderick.
Written in the form of a diary, this book is about losing control and learning to regain it, putting individuality above consumerism and asking who is responsible for the financial meltdown that more and more people face everyday.
Paul Broderick has always had an uneasy relationship with money. A small time lottery winner at eighteen, he arrived at Anglia university to study literature and dropped out after a run in with drugs. He became a town planner. Now recovered from bankruptcy, Paul is leading a campaign to encourage more people to hang their debts and start living again.
