Staff Reviews


Fintan O’Toole, in his The Politics of Pain, asserts England has become a nation of submissives, supporting his thesis with the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey is the nation's best-selling writing in any genre so far this century. With Shakespeare's histories, Orwell’s 1984, and Dickens’ novels’ spiritual reckonings as his backdrop, O’Toole parses literary, dietary, and musical trends since World War II, exploring the Brits' self-pitying rally behind John Lydon, née Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, in promoting a politician who openly admitted his facts were mostly mere figments of his own imagination, so leading to the passage of Brexit, as if a flailing of itself.

— Ray Marsocci
