The Bricks that Built the Houses

Award-winning poet and rapper Kate Tempest’s electrifying debut novel takes us into the beating heart of the capital in this multi-generational tale of drugs, desire and belonging

It gets into your bones. You don't even realise it, until you're driving through it, watching all the things you've always known and leaving them behind.

Young Londoners Becky, Harry and Leon are leaving the city in a fourth-hand Ford Cortina with a suitcase full of money. They are also leaving behind Pete, Becky's boyfriend, at his surprise birthday party. Moving back in time – and into the heart of London –The Bricks that Built the Houses explores a cross-section of contemporary urban life with a powerful moral microscope, giving us intimate stories of hidden lives, and showing us that good intentions don’t always lead to the right decisions.

Taking us into the homes and hearts of ordinary people, their families and their communities, Kate Tempest exposes moments of beauty, disappointment, ambition and failure. Wise but never cynical, driven by empathy and ethics, The Bricks the Built the Houses questions how we live with and love one another.

Portrait
Poet, rapper, playwright and novelist Kate Tempest grew up in south-east London, where she still lives. Her epic poem, Brand New Ancients - a modern-day myth set in south London - won the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry in 2013, making her the first-ever recipient under 40. Her plays include GlassHouse, Wasted and Hopelessly Devoted. Her debut solo album, Everybody Down, a narrative-led hip hop record based on The Bricks that Built the Houses, was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize 2014. Kate Tempest's second poetry collection, Hold Your Own was published in 2014, when she was also named by the Poetry Society as a Next Generation Poet, a once a decade accolade. The Bricks that Built the Houses is her first novel.
