9780099548690: The Making of Mr Bolsover

A tale of a modern misfit and a demented political biography, for fans of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Name: Lynch, Andrew (b. 16.10.1958); a.k.a. "Mr. Bolsover." Career: civil servant, librarian, columnist, local councilor, revolutionary. Recreations: shooting squirrels, skinning rabbits, cooking with rats. Address: present whereabouts unknown; last sighted in South Downs woodland, close to the A275. Professional interests: cataloging systems, hermits, badger welfare, troglodytes, revolutionary politics. But a Who’s Who entry can reveal only so much. Like all the great political lives—Churchill, Disraeli, Gladstone, Genghis Khan—Bolsover’s is one of incident, drama, and passion. From the calm of Uckfield library to the demands of high office, a life on the run and a final confrontation with the authorities, The Making of Mr Bolsover is a moving, epic tale of a modern misfit and a political biography like no other.

About the Author:

Cornelius Medvei is the author of Caroline and Mr Thundermug.

Review:

"A minor masterpiece of the deadpan . . . a very, very funny book . . . genuinely original and written with understated intelligence."  —Sunday Telegraph

"A brilliant parody. . . . Blending the sublime with the suburban produces some of the best humour, and Medvei has it down to a fine art."  —Lady
