Product description

Review

she gives a unique insight into the workings of government from her time as a minister in three departments and as a member of the Shadow cabinet in the 1990s. (DAILY EXPRESS)

You wouldn't expect Ann Widdecombe to pull her punches - but there's NEVER been a political autobiography quite like this... (THE MAIL ON SUNDAY)

The book captures the intensity of emotions and the relentlessness of intrigue at Westminster for a minister determined to hold on to her integrity under what feels to her like pressure from all sides. It is a vivid portrayal of a world she clearly loves. (Rachel Sylvester THE TIMES)

It is briskly and competently written..... if you are a Widdy fan, as she seems to believe most people are, you'll enjoy this book. (Lynn Barber THE SUNDAY TIMES)

Ann Widdecombe has sailed through life with the same brisk, no-nonsense style that she brings to this highly readable memoir. (Lloyd Evans THE SPECTATOR)

The book is breezily written, as befits the author of four novels, and characteristically honest. (Stephen Moss The Guardian)

a feisty public figure in an increasingly conformist world, a woman who doesn't give a toss what you think about her looks and isn't prepared to compromise her views for anyone (Ian Thomson EVENING STANDARD)

From Singapore to Dartmoor and Parliament to the pantomime stage, Ann takes readers on a gloriously entertaining journey through her life. (HELLO magazine)

Publishers know that the sales of political memoirs depend entirely on the author's popularity. This explains why Alan Johnson's autobiography has risen skywards while poor David Blunkett's performed a bellyflop. Widdecombe's ripping tale will follow the flightpath of the former. (Lloyd Evans THE SPECTATOR)

If feminism is about robust individualism and uncompromising, occasionally bolshie personality - and your guess is as good as mine - well, she's up there with Mary Beard..........She's good-humoured about the controversies but gets her own back. (Melanie McDonagh THE EVENING STANDARD)

Ann Widdecombe is big. It's politics that got small. (Liz Jones THE MAIL ON SUNDAY)

She has a compelling story to tell, particularly about political dramas at the heart of Westminster and, with the instinctive gift for narrative that has made her a successful novelist, she relates it in a highly readable style. (Leo McKinstry DAILY EXPRESS)

Hugely entertaining autobiography...the principal joy of this book, though, is that, reading it, you could just as easily be sitting chatting to Ann. (Peter Stanford THE CATHOLIC HERALD)

But I have great pleasure in saying that this book is a cut above the usual political autobiography and I would have been proud to publish it. (Iain Dale LBC.CO.UK)

The former minister, author and Express columnist's life story is clearly a gripping read. (SUNDAY EXPRESS)

This is a charming portrait of growing up, an insightful portrait of an age, and a candid account of the mess of Parliament from a survivor of the electoral carnage of 1997. (Pat Ashworth CHURCH TIMES)

[on Ann] She had many of Thatcher's qualities, with more of the wit... (John Rentoul POLITICAL BOOKS)

The book is breezily written, as befits the author of four novels, and characteristically honest. (Stephen Moss THE GUARDIAN)

Book Description

Forthright memoirs of a singular personality - former MP and STRICTLY COME DANCING star, Ann Widdecombe.
