Award-winning journalist and writer David Aaronovitch takes a look back at his own family history and that of the post-war British communist mind-set embodied by his parents.

Aaronovitch looks back at his own memories of growing up in a London communist family where society’s usual heroes were their villains, where the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the embodiment of everything they could wish for and where they went to Socialist Sunday School rather than church. What emerges is an account of an ultimately doomed world set apart from the rest of post-war Britain and its modern legacies.

Aaronovitch was an active young communist and is a former left-wing president of the National Union of Students. Today, he is a regular columnist for The Times and author of Paddling to Jerusalem: An Aquatic Tour of Our Small Country and Voodoo Histories: the Role of Conspiracy Theory in Modern History. He is a winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Journalism and a What The Papers Say Columnist of the Year.
