9780099548690: The Making Of Mr Bolsover

NAME: Lynch, Andrew (b. 16.10.1958); a.k.a. 'Mr Bolsover'

CAREER: civil servant, librarian, columnist, local councillor, 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: cataloguing 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.

Review:

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

"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
