Waterstones Says

One of our most astute and provocative social commentators tackles notions of identity and the multiplicity of narratives available in contemporary society. Dazzlingly intelligent and passionate, Whose Story is This? is a vital manifesto for the fragmented world we now live in.

Who gets to shape the narrative of our times?

The current moment is a battle over that foundational power. Women, people of colour and non-straight people are telling other versions, and white men in particular are fighting to preserve their own centrality. In this outstanding collection of essays by one of the most prescient and insightful commentators today, Solnit appraises the voices that are emerging, why they matter and the obstacles they face in making themselves heard.

Rebecca Solnit: The Waterstones Interview

Description

In her latest collection of essays, Rebecca Solnit explores the question of who gets to shape the narrative of our times. With that power, so long in the hands of white men in America, now shifting to women, people of colour and non-straight people, we spoke to her about her personal experiences and her view of the changing world.
