Editorial Reviews


"Penny is re-inventing the language of dissent, delivering verbal taser-barbs to the left and right, and causing apoplexy among the old men in cardigans who run the British blogosphere." --Paul Mason, economics editor of BBC's Newsnight

"Cuts, sexism and riots, Laurie Penny's fresh and angry voice captures the moment and the important issues  – highly recommended." --Polly Toynbee, columnist for The Guardian
“The recent protests around the world have yet to produce a print journalist capable of transmitting the energy and immediacy of the protesters.  In large part due to the easy availability of citizen-produced non-print media, there has not been a writer whose words put you in the crowd facing off against the police or enjoying the camaraderie of a fellow protester.  However, if I were to nominate such a writer for the job it would be the British journalist Laurie Penny.” -- Counterpunch

Format: Paperback
Laurie Penny's perspective is invaluable. Both because of her sheer honesty and her penchant for finding herself in the midst of trouble.

No one else reports from the center of protests and certainly not with her eloquent anger.

Contained within are early works from 2011-12, covering youth uprisings in Britain, British political disconnect, and of course, feminism.
