Verso and Daunt Books invite you to a rare evening with

Tariq Ali in conversation with Mohsin Hamid, author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist

To discuss his new book The Protocols of the Elders of Sodom and Other Essays

Verso 9781844673674 Protocols of the Elders of Sodom smallTariq Ali, renowned historian, filmmaker writer, political campaigner and commentator, trains a critical, imaginative and occasionally satirical eye on the works of varied writers – including Tolstoy, Munif, Cervantes, Powell, Solzhenitsyn, Grossman, Goytisolo and Rushdie. The resulting collection of essays – many published for the first time – explore the links between literature, history and politics.

Describing his new book, Tariq Ali says “What these essays have in common is a refusal to downgrade politics and history.”
