Product Description

Review

"Very funny and charming" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"A brilliant parody… Blending the sublime with the suburban produces some of the best humour, and Medvei has it down to a fine art" (Stephen Coulson Lady)

"An exploration of how myths are engendered as much as it is a whimsical satire of political ambition… Very much in love with the Sussex countryside that it so beautifully evokes… Assured, precise prose" (Philip Womack Literary Review)

Book Description

A tale of a modern misfit and a sort of demented political biography from a brilliant writer

This book is very beautifully written in plain, clear prose that suggests immense care and slow, thoughtful consideration of every last pronoun and adjective. Its rather minimal plot and subject matter are at the same time perfectly rational and also slightly left-of-centre, very slightly divorced from reality, producing a kind of humour that never makes you laugh, but evinces many a wry chuckle. A longer, much more detailed novel from this author - if his meticulous way of writing would ever allow him to produce one - could be a very major work indeed. As it is, this short book seems slightly pointless ... or is it? It certainly made me think. I really hate that.

I loved this. It has a very dry sense of humour and a strong sense of place (South Downs) - and provides a clever twist on the genre of 'political biography'. Cornelius Medvei writes beautifully.

Like so many novels the material palls in places and I only found it amusing occasionally.

Rubbish! The Mr Bolsover at the end of the book is the same as the one at the beginning.
