Nikesh is a bestselling writer of books and TV. He’s also a columnist for The Observer, editor of The Good Journal, and co-founder of The Good Literacy Agency — among a few other roles and titles.
TIME Magazine recently named him one of twelve leaders shaping the next generation of artists, he’s been shortlisted for a Liberty Human Rights Award, and he was one of Foreign Policy’s 100 Global Thinkers in 2016.
What I admire most about Nikesh is that he pursues variety in his work without ever compromising on quality or principles. His projects are always carefully conceived, and he consistently champions underrepresented voices.
If you’re not familiar with Nikesh yet, start with The Good Immigrant — a collection of first-person essays examining the British cultural conversation around race. He edited the anthology and wrote the introduction.
