Self-Pity and Heroic Failure: The Brexit Neurosis
Fintan O’Toole is one of Ireland’s leading political and cultural commentators and a prolific author. His work has appeared in many international newspapers and magazines, including The New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, Granta, The Guardian, the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has consistently been one of this country’s sharpest and most considered writers on the fraught relationship between Britain and Ireland over the centuries, particularly in the modern era. His nuanced observations and analysis of Brexit in The Irish Times and elsewhere have made for some of the best-informed reading about the crisis, rising above the media cacophony and form the basis of his forthcoming book. Don’t miss this essential conversation with Gerry Stembridge, one of Ireland’s most gifted satirists.
