Lines in the Sand : Collected Journalism Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'By miles the most brilliant journalist of our age' Lynn Barber'A golden writer' Andrew MarrA.

A. Gill was rightly hailed as one of the greatest journalists of our time.

This selection of some of his recent pieces, which he made himself before his untimely death, spans the last five years from all corners of the world.

It shows him at his most perceptive, brilliant and funny. His subjects range from the controversial - fur - to the heartfelt - a fantastic crystallisation of what it means to be European.

He tackles life drawing, designs his own tweed, considers boyhood through the prism of the Museum of Childhood, and spends a day at Donald Trump's university.

In his final two articles he wrote with characteristic wit and courage about his cancer diagnosis - 'the full English - and the limits of the NHS.

But more than any other subject, a recurring theme emerges in the overwhelming story of our times: the refugee crisis.

In the last few years A. A. Gill wrote with compassion and anger about the refugees' story, giving us both its human face and its appalling context.

The resulting articles are journalism at its finest and fiercest.
