Fintan O'Toole - The Politics of Pain: Postwar England and the Rise of Nationalism — at Politics and Prose at the Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

An award-winning writer for The Irish Times, The Guardian, and The New York Review of Books, O’Toole, author of books including Judging Shaw, is one of the sharpest critics of literature, drama, and politics now working. His new book is a profound, yet also darkly funny, portrait of England that seeks to explain the country’s nationalist trends by looking back to the end of World War II. While the British won that war, they also lost the Empire and ceded the next century to the Americans, and O’Toole views this is as the root cause for Brexit and a host of cultural idiosyncrasies.
