Nesrine Malik: Toxic Myths

Nesrine Malik: Toxic Myths

We are in a unique moment as it is becoming clear that the old frames of reference are not working. That the narratives used for decades to stave off progressive causes are in danger of being exposed as falsehood. That the myths, be it of sexual liberation or of white non-identity, are at odds with the lived experience and in urgent need of revision.

In her new book, We Need New Stories: Challenging the Toxic Myths Behind Our Age of Discontent, Nesrine Malik investigates a range of stories used to maintain the status quo. As the centre ground is being eroded, she challenges us to find new narrators whose stories can fill the void and unite us behind a shared progressive vision.

Nesrine Malik is a British Sudanese columnist and features writer for the Guardian. She was named Society and Diversity Commentator of the Year at the 2017 Comment Awards.

"An acute and nuanced interrogator of contemporary prejudices, Nesrine Malik writes with immense moral courage and intellectual power" - Pankaj Mishra.
