Nick Cohen – What’s Left?

Posted on February 16, 2007 by



A welcome return to Little Atoms for Nick Cohen. Nick is a columnist for the Observer and New Statesman. He does occasional pieces for many other publications, including the London Evening Standard 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 latest book is What’s Left?: How Liberals Lost Their Way, an examination of the agonies, idiocies and compromises of mainstream liberal thought will be published by 4th Estate on the 5th February 2007. Ascerbic, funny and uncompromising, Nick Cohen’s forensic political journalism makes him one of the sharpest writers on the British left.
