Already hailed for its 'brilliant analysis' by John Rentoul my new book A State of Play was published on April 24th, and should be available in the book shops now, but of not, you can order it direct from from Bloomsbury.
The book speaks for itself, of course. And here's a limited preview of its contents. But just in case it doesn't, I'll be doing a few talks about the relationship between politics and political fiction over the next few months.
Further details and more dates will be added when things become clearer.
Tuesday April 8th: at the Social History History annual conference, I talked about 'Fiction and politics in 1970s television dramas'.
Tuesdays April 29th: I was due to address a meeting of the Conservative History Group in the House of Lords on 'Conservative Political Fiction: from Disraeli to Michael Dobbs', with Lord Dobbs. But this has been postponed - although if you want a preview, we recently crossed swords on the Today programme.
Wednesday May 7th: at the University of Salford I'll be talking about why I wrote the book.
Saturday July 5th: at the People's History Museum I'll be talking about 'Manchester and Salford in Political Fiction'.
I'll also hopefully be talking at the Labour History Group at some point.
I'm happy to consider any - polite - invitations to do more!
