Book Review: Revolution by Russell Brand

From Nine To Noon, 10:40 am on 24 November 2014

Comedian and actor Russell Brand expands on an fiery interview on BBC's Newsnight a year ago, in which he took on legendary interviewer Jeremy Paxman. In it, Brand lamented the state of the world and exhorted people to not vote, in order to help spark a revolution. Now Brand - whose previous two autobiographies centred mainly on his sex addiction, drug addiction, and self-destructive antics in various television jobs - gets serious about how he thinks the global political elite can be brought down. Does it work? Reviewed by Charlotte Graham. Published by Century.
