Listen to an audio recording of San's story, 'Kick-Start'.

Sandra Alland was commissioned to write for this new collection of short stories adapting history into fiction. Collaborating with blind historian, Francis Salt, she tells the story of blind asylums in Manchester and Glasgow at the turn of the 20th Century, with a focus on the Glasgow Asylum Strike of 1918 and the National League of the Blind's 1920 march on London. 

When does a riot become a revolution? When does a demonstration of dissent tip over into a moment of unstoppable political change? This book asks 20 authors and 20 historians to bring crucial moments of British protest to life. Following fictional characters, caught up in the momentum of non-fictional moments, writers offer their take on historical protests, working with historians to offer rare insights into protests from a live, street-level perspective.
