Staff Pick: "Steal as Much as You Can (How to Win the Culture Wars in the Age of Austerity) by Natalie Olah, is a book that rather than saying “everything is the internet’s fault” is a refreshing look at how a generation was educated, promised a bright future and ultimately given nothing. A captivating telling of the post-Thatcher years and how culture influences politics and vice versa. Olah is a fantastic writer, making a subject that could easily feel like a history lesson become an enticing page turner. It’s an especially good read for those who are still familiarizing themselves with modern British politics (even being from Ireland, I am still confused).
Olah articulates what many feel and exposes the reasons why. A recommended read for those of us who feel a bit lost in our current climate (so everyone)."
