Publisher's Synopsis

BRITISH BOOK AWARDS NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2024

A searing insider's account of ten extraordinary years in Parliament from Rory Stewart, former Cabinet minister and co-presenter of breakout hit podcast The Rest Is Politics


'The most exceptional political memoir I've 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.
