Tim Soutphommasane

Tim Soutphommasane has been writing that the left should embrace patriotism. Because it’s popular.

Anyway, more of his nuanced and intelligent thought: here, he reviews Arundhati Roy’s book of essays:

While she dedicates Listening to Grasshoppers to “those who have learned to divorce hope from reason”, there is little hope in these pages, and what reason Roy offers is hard to hear above all the feral, howling noise.

This about summarises the level of intellectual engagement in his review.
