Abominations

Selected Essays from a Career of Courting Self-Destruction

«

‘This trenchant, unrepentant collection reminds you that she’s a brilliant writer… Order a copy in case she’s cancelled by Christmas’ THE TIMES (Book of the Year)

This trenchant, unrepentant collection reminds you that she’s a brilliant writer on writing’ THE TIMES

Abominations is a refreshing mix of the personal and the political. Shriver’s essays beat with deliciously, dangerous opinions, but the cadence is catchingly humane. The world and my mind feel a little bigger and a little clearer’ Laura Dodsworth

‘Provocative, funny, original and pithy’ THE TIMES

‘Testament to the fierce intelligence of a writer who wants us to think more, probe more, challenge more — and who also makes it fun’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘You may disagree with Lionel Shriver’s bracing journalism, but her right to spark disquiet goes to the heart of the freedom of expression issue’ Rachel Cooke, OBSERVER

‘Mutinous essays about modern politics and culture… An independent mind and a sense of humour are dangerous things to possess. The spiky, politically incorrect novelist Lionel Shriver has them in abundance’ THE TIMES
