Praise for Sue Townsend:
“It’s a good thing British subjects are no longer beheaded for treason, or Sue Townsend’s head would roll . . . outrageously cutting.”—Newsday
“[Townsend] is a national treasure.”—The New York Times Book Review
Edward Clare, PM of England, doesn’t know the price of a liter of milk. Worse, he’s admitted it on national television. The public that ushered him to a landslide election has turned against him.
Edward decides the only way to get closer to the men and women on the street is to travel the country dressed in drag. Leaving his high-powered, ambitious wife to attend to things in his absence, he sets out.
In this comic romp Sue Townsend sends up, roasts, hoists and generally petards the once and future prime ministers as only she can.
Sue Townsend is celebrated as the author of the bestselling
Adrian Moleseries, read by millions, as well as the #1 British bestseller, The Queen and I. She lives in Leicester, England.
