“Adam Gopnik is one of the greatest thinkers and wordsmiths of our age,” says On Being’s Krista Tippett. Veteran New Yorker contributor and NYT-bestselling author, Adam Gopnik is an acclaimed essayist, known for his fierce intellect and signature wit. Who better to take on one of modern democracy’s most pressing issues? In A Thousand Small Sanities, Gopnik interrogates the crisis of liberalism. Interrogating why liberalism has come under attack from both the left and the right, he stages a rousing defense of liberal ideology. In eye-opening conversation with Globe & Mail Western Arts Correspondent Marsha Lederman, Gopnik engages in a fierce defense of a maligned ideology, making it a must-see for anyone concerned with our contentious moral and political futures.
