Things That Can And Cannot Be Said




Acclaimed actor John Cusack & Booker Prize-winning activist Arundhati Roy meet heroic whistle-blower Edward Snowden and report back

'What sort of love is this love that we have for countries? What sort of country is it that will ever live up to our dreams? What sort of dreams were these that have been broken?'

An account of an unforgettable meeting between four people over two days: Arundhati Roy, Edward Snowden, John Cusack and Daniel Ellsburg. Weaving together verbatim conversations and narrated recollections from both Roy and Cusack, this Penguin Special interrogates the geo-political forces which shape our world. Ranging from the Vietnam War and the Pentagon Papers to ongoing crises in the Middle East, it brings to these topics the full force of Arundhati Roy's passionate humanity and searing intellect. Both political and personal, activist and humanist, this is a powerful call for resistance to America's ongoing, malign hegemony.
