Tommy Wieringa – Thoughts on Our Time


About the book

Tommy Wieringa is concerned about culture, democracy and intellectual freedom. Although current events are the reason to take up his pen, he always goes deeper by seeing burning questions in their historical context and simultaneously by making a moral appeal.

Wieringa excels as a columnist, his writing offers an incisive analysis of the disruptions of our time and in doing so make us consider them further and search for solutions.

‘As a columnist, Tommy Wieringa is like a father in a ruthless world.’ – DE GROENE AMSTERDAMMER

‘Thoughts on Our Time is akin to his novels, since the result of all this fine thinking and writing is light and dark at the same time.’ – HUMO
