A rousing call to arms for a fairer society from the well-loved Guardian political journalist Zoe Williams.
ZOE WILLIAMS writes comment pieces, interviews and reviews. She is best known as a Guardian columnist, but her work has also appeared in the Spectator, NOW magazine, the New Statesman and the Evening Standard. She lives in London with her partner and two children.
