Protestant working-class communities are often accused of having 'no culture' other than the Orange Order and marching bands.
However, Connal Parr's book Inventing the Myth: Political Passions and the Ulster Protestant Imagination, shows an alternative culture emerging through a range of dramatists and writers from a Protestant working-class background, many of whom were involved in progressive causes and Labour politics.
Shortlisted for the Ewart-Biggs Literary Prize and the Royal Historical Society's Whitfield Prize, this elegantly-written book shatters a number of myths along the way and is sure to provoke debate and discussion for years to come.
