Dreams of Leaving and Remaining: James Meek and Chris Bickerton

In Dreams of Leaving and Remaining (Verso), novelist, journalist, essayist and contributing editor to the LRB James Meek anatomises the fractured body of our nation as it approaches one of the most momentous junctures in its post-war history. In a series of frontline reports and interviews from every corner of the island, he talks to remainers, leavers, undecideds and don’t-cares.

He was in conversation about his discoveries with Chris Bickerton, Reader in Modern European Politics at the University of Cambridge.
