About this issue: Overview

Tim’s star
Since his memorable performance in Reservoir Dogs Tim Roth has been a Hollywood fixture. Younger fans may not remember his string of roles in films made by British indie royalty but now he’s taking a chance on working with emerging new directorial talent. And much of it happened by chance, he tells Simon Bland.

If the mask fits
The far right may be dominated by angry men but the women attracted to extreme politics organise hate with just as much agency, writes Catherine Stinton.

Cooking the book
Authors have long used crime novels as a way to explore and comment on social issues – but Trevor Wood is one of few to put a homeless character at the centre of a book. Kevin Bourke discovers how he did his research while also helping the homeless.


News, arts and entertainment, KT Tunstall’s letter to his younger self, columnist Saskia Murphy, crossword, Sudoku and more.
