Little Atoms with Nick Cohen
Nick Cohen returns for his third visit to Little Atoms. Nick is
a columnist for the Observer and The London Evening Standard. He does
occasional pieces for many other publications, including the Standpoint
and New Humanist. Cruel Britannia: Reports on the Sinister and the
Preposterous, a collection of his journalism, was published by Verso in
1999, and Pretty Straight Guys, a history of Britain under Tony Blair, was
published by Faber in 2003. Nick's next book What's Left?: How Liberals
Lost Their Way, an examination of the agonies, idiocies and compromises of
mainstream liberal thought was published by 4th Estate in February 2007.
His Latest book, Waiting for the Etonians: Reports From the Sickbed of
Liberal England is published by 4th Estate in February 2009. Ascerbic,
funny and uncompromising, Nick Cohen's forensic political journalism makes
him one of the sharpest writers on the British left.
