Nick Cohen

Nick Cohen is a columnist for the Observer. He does occasional pieces for many other publications, including Standpoint and The Spectator. 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 next book What's Left?: How Liberals Lost Their Way, an examination of the agonies, idiocies and compromises of mainstream liberal thought was published in 2007. Waiting for the Etonians: Reports From the Sickbed of Liberal England was published by 4th Estate in February 2009. Ascerbic, funny and uncompromising, Nick Cohen's forensic political journalism makes him one of the sharpest writers on the British left. His latest publication is You Can't Read this Book. Nick has made four visits to Little Atoms.
