Description

In Pretty Straight Guys Nick Cohen, one of the most exciting journalists of his generation, explores the feeling of angry impotence which has swept modern Britain during the Labour administration. Shifting focus away from Westminster and into other territories of New Labour influence, from America to India and based on original research and interviews - this book combines contemporary history with satire and polemic. With the hope that a well-written argument and a love of storytelling can make the reader see the world afresh.show more
