LBC phone-in host O’Brien discusses a range of topics (Brexit, gay and trans rights, Islamophobia), drawing on his radio experiences and his developing political identity. Not quite the book I was expecting, but some interesting points raised about critical thinking in the modern era, in a light, accessible way.
Author and folklorist Garner writes on (mostly) his Cheshire childhood of the 1940s. Splendid child’s-eye approach, without a hint of nostalgia or of adult reminiscence. Hugely recommended, even if you’ve not read Garner’s other work.
