Doppelganger a Trip into the Mirror World
Naomi Klein in conversation with Gemma Milne at the Edinburgh launch of her new book Doppelganger a Trip into the Mirror World. Lighthouse Books write:
“This is a book for our age and for all of us; a deadly serious dark comedy which invites us to view our reflections in the looking glass.It’s for anyone who has lost hours down an internet rabbit hole, who wonders why our politics has become so fatally warped, and who wants a way out of our collective vertigo and back to fighting for what really matters.”
Naomi Klein is the award-winning author of international bestsellers including This Changes Everything, The Shock Doctrine, No Logo, No Is Not Enough, and On Fire, which have been published in more than thirty-five languages. She is an associate professor in the department of geography at the University of British Columbia, the founding co-director of UBC’s Centre of Climate Justice, and an honorary professor of Media and Climate at Rutgers University.
