George Monbiot

George Monbiot divides his time between writing for The Guardian and pursuing a number of quixotic projects: generally writing obscure books and campaigning for lost causes. His recent album Breaking the Spell of Loneliness, which he wrote and toured with the musician Ewan McLennan, was well-reviewed. He is the author of several best-selling books; his latest, Out of the Wreckage: a new politics for an age of crisis, comes out in October.

George Monbiot was selected for the 2015 European Press Prize shortlist with ‘Columns on the state of our lives and the natural world’
