I have been writing creatively since the age of ten, and this site is
intended to tell you about my work, and hopefully interest you in it.
This is one of my book signings, on January 10 2009.
My new book is published by Imprint Academic on 20th
April 2015. I have believed, throughout my life, that writers bear a
responsibility to confront the cruelty, corruption and dishonesty in the
society in which they live. I have written this book in that spirit,
and in the age-old belief that ' The simple step of the simple,
courageous human being is not to take part in the lie, not to support
deceit...More, literature can overcome the lie.'
slimy Anglicised form of Fascism, with cultured policemen instead of
Nazi gorillas and the lion and the unicorn instead of the swastika.' -
Orwell's Faded Lion traces the history of Britain from the end of the Second World War, during the darkest days of which George Orwell wroteThe Lion and the Unicorn,
calling for a British revolution, to the present. The book confronts
the actual direction taken by British society against the background of
the high hopes of the generation that survived the war. The book also
considers Britain alongside its European neighbours, drawing upon
personal experiences of living and travelling widely in Europe, as well
as experience of left-wing party politics and of the Northern Ireland
situation in the 1980s. Anthony James is relentless in condemning the
morally corrupt policies of all the major political parties, as well as
the means by which the British establishment protects itself, and the
current irresponsibility of the anti-European lobby.
