Pressestimmen '[Heroic Failure's] arguments are well made. O'Toole is very good at analysing the 'camp' style of Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson who wave serious economic objections away with 'references to Dunkirk or the Blitz' while presenting 'bans' on bendy bananas as vital 'tests of national freedom'' The Week. 'Full of acute cultural observation and includes a hilarious take-down of Boris Johnson' New Statesman. 'O'Toole shows sometimes in provocative fashion how anxieties about British decline spawned a topsy-turvy story' Financial Times. 'The argument is brilliantly made in Fintan O'Toole's very funny Heroic Failure' Kevin O'Rourke Guardian. 'The most entertaining book about Brexit - and in times this dark we must give thanks for the laughter it occasions' Tablet. 'A brilliant exploration of the Brexit psyche and as one would expect it is written beautifully as well' Belfast Telegraph. 'Of all the wonderful things I devoured over the Xmas break I enjoyed this the most. Best book about the English that I've read for ages it explains how their post-imperial neurosis led to Brexit' Billy Bragg. 'A quite brilliant dissection of the cultural roots of the Brexit narrative. It is a love letter to the best of Britain and a demolition of the fantasies of the worst' David Miliband. 'O'Toole is never knowingly understated and these essays are best enjoyed as intellectual comfort food for anyone who agrees that Brexit has no redeeming features whatsoever. Stylishly presented ... They are the work of a skilled debater' Dublin Sunday Business Post. 'Excellent ... Heroic Failure has many lessons about political backstabbing' Martina Fitzgerald Dublin Sunday Business Post Books of the Year. 'Fintan O'Toole [...] displays an amazing command of the facts but what distinguishes his book is the quality of the mind at work the sharpness of the analysis the style. O'Toole even makes you feel sorry for the Brexit leaders and that is no small achievement' Colm Toibin Irish Independent Books of the Year. 'O'Toole has been one of the most astute commentators on Brexit and here he offers his analysis on the forces in the English psyche that brought it about. Nor does he pull any punches ... He writes to devastating effect his framing of Brexit as a 'weird psychodrama' raising some uncomfortable questions' Herald. 'Britain's psychodrama as Fintan O'Toole reminds us in his brilliant book is almost entirely about its reaction to winning World War II but losing its empire' Sunday Business Post. 'O'Toole offers a central sexual metaphor for the fall in which England alternately dominates and submits' Guardian. '[The Euro] is what British conservative thought has feared since the 1970s. Readers interested in exploring these fears and pretty much everyone else should read [this]' Sunday Business Post. 'What gives this book its distinction is the fact that [O'Toole] is as adept at analysing character (as revealed by language) as he is at marshalling statistics ... O'Toole uncovers and dissects it with the deliberate affectless skill of a virtuoso surgeon. The result for me is a wildly entertaining but uncomfortable read. In short he has nailed us to the floor with a nine-inch nail. It's certainly not easy bein' English these days and O'Toole with this pitilessly brilliant book has just made it at least fifty shades harder' Jonathan Coe Irish Times. 'Fintan O'Toole's searing polemic [is] expertly researched and full of unexpectedly funny vignettes' Sunday Business Post Books of the Year. 'A witty attack on the fantasies that drove Brexit ... Clever over the top but entertaining political writing' The Times Books of the Year. 'The psychopathology of Brexit is at the heart of Fintan O'Toole's compact counterblast' Times Educational Supplement. '[O'Toole] is a sharp thinker and he makes many good points ... There is also a lot to learn from his incidental arguments. This is a literary book and I was delighted' The Times.
