Nathalie Olah was born in Birmingham. After periods of time living in Germany and the Netherlands, she has been based as a freelance journalist and editor in London since 2015.

"A book of anger and resistance - we need more working-class voices
like hers. A class book about class war."
"A how-to guide for creating things of worth and truth when upper middle-class pop culture has dominated, and affected British politics in a very real way."
"What makes Steal As Much As You Can so urgent isn't just that Olah diagnoses these problems, but that she offers a roadmap out of this stagnation. The book ends with a call to arms for a coarse, unapologetic, creative working class culture, and how to achieve it."
"A stirring, spiky book that comes as a pertinent reminder that nothing is inevitable and that things can always get better."
"This razor-sharp polemic exploring class, taste and culture, is one of the most insightful analyses of the British class system I've read in years."
