Polly Toynbee

Polly Toynbee

Join one of the most respected and razor-sharp voices in social commentary, Polly Toynbee, past winner of the Orwell Prize for journalism, as she introduces her new book, An Uneasy Inheritance – My Family and Other Radicals. While for generations Polly Toynbee's ancestors have been committed left-wingers railing against injustice, they lived a prosperous life of academia or journalism. So where does that leave their ideals of class equality? Through a colourful, entertaining examination of her own family, which includes such famous names as Nancy Mitford and philosopher Bertrand Russell, Polly Toynbee talks to Tatton Spiller about how to gauge a truly honest conversation about class in Britain today.
