Publisher's Synopsis

SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING Long before the pandemic, care work has been underpaid and its values disregarded. In this remarkable and compassionate book, Madeleine Bunting speaks to those on the front line of the care crisis, struggling to hold together a crumbling infrastructure. A combination of extraordinary first-hand accounts of caring with a history of care and its language, Labours of Love is an impassioned call for change at a time when we need it most.
