Ever wondered why the indiscretions of some MPs make the front page while others don't? How close journalists really are to politicians? Or how on earth the country is run when the British political system is in such a mess?

In Haven't You Heard?, Marie Le Conte looks at the role gossip, whispers and tittle-tattle play in all areas of politics - for the MPs and their advisers, the press who cover them and the civil servants in the middle of it all. From policy rows which aren't about policy at all and boozy nights with dramatic consequences, to people spinning their way to the top and dark secrets never seeing the light of day, Marie explores in great and entertaining detail the human side of the people running the country against a backdrop of political mayhem.

Review:

'A romp through Westminster chit chat and how facts, rumour and mischief-making become the news we all obsess over' Source: Tim Shipman

'Not just eye-opening but eye-popping, and frequently laugh-out-loud funny. An essential read for anyone considering a career in politics and rollicking good fun for those of us already here.' Source: Emily Thornberry

'The personal truly is political in politics. Amazingly, Westminster pub gossip really can become public policy. Marie wittily pulls back the curtain on this odd, disproportionately powerful postcode and invites you in with a fag and a pint. You're going to need it.' Source: Emma Barnett, BBC Newsnight

'Marie Le Conte has so entertainingly and charmingly got inside the Westminster bubble and its workings that they haven't even noticed her doing it. When they read it, they'll laugh - and then (at least some of them) will cry.' Source: James Ball, author of Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered the World

'Salacious, shocking, and hilarious in equal measure, Marie Le Conte delivers the juiciest gossip with driest wit. Read it!' Source: Ralf Little
