'The Ministry of Nostalgia': Owen Hatherley

Fully Booked
London Review Bookshop

Why should we have to ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’? In his brilliant, polemical rampage, The Ministry of Nostalgia (Verso), Owen Hatherley shows how our past is being resold in order to defend the indefensible: from the selling of a 'make do and mend' aesthetic, to a nostalgia for a utopian past that never existed.

Joining Owen to discuss the book are journalist and author of Trans: A Memoir (Verso), Juliet Jacques; and Richard King, author of Original Rockers (Faber).
