The most exceptional political memoir Ive ever read ALAN JOHNSON
An instant classic MARINA HYDE
At last a politician who can write SEBASTIAN FAULKS

Over the course of a decade, Rory Stewart went from being a political outsider to standing for prime minister before being sacked from a Conservative Party that he had come to barely recognise.

Uncompromising, honest and darkly humorous, this is his story of the challenges, absurdities and realities of political life. Instantly praised as a new classic, it is an astonishing portrait of our turbulent times.

Genuinely eye-openingalways riveting, often horrifying

Politics On the Edge Reviews

Theres no denying that Rory Stewart stands almost alone among British politicians: hes one of a handful who can actually turn a phrase. That talent is put to good use here no other account of how Cameron Toryism curdled into May and Johnson is likely to be as evocative or amusing as this one * The Times, *The Times Political Book of the Year* *
If you want to better understand the catastrophe that has been our government since 2010, or you just want to bask in Stewarts beautifully formulated prose, read this book * New Statesman, *Books of the Year* *
A brilliant insiders account of the Cameron-May-Johnson years * FT, Books of the Year 2023 *
It is the sheer sharpness, originality and truth-telling grace of Stewarts prose, along with the vital importance of his subject, that makes his new book a truly exceptional political autobiography, both a pleasure to read, and a vital wake-up call * Scotsman, *Books of the Year* *
Full of sharp observations and often funny a portrait of a country where power is wielded by empty careerists, working in a broken system * Financial Times, *Books of the Year* *
