What’s Left? Martin Amis

From an interview with the Sunday Times here

He doesn’t feel he has become more politically right wing with the advancing years, rather that the centre in Britain has drifted to the left. “It’s not really the left though. Nick Cohen’s book said it all.”

He found Cohen’s book What’s Left?, a controversial and scathing critique of modern left-wing incoherence, spoke to his own politics directly: “It’s a sanitary corrective to a lot of woozy undirected sympathy swilling around.”
