ALAN JOHNSON
In conversation with Rachel Cooke
The Long and Winding Road
is the third
volume in Alan Johnson’s award-winning
memoir. Johnson takes us to the corridors
of Westminster – from his early political
skirmishes as a trade union leader to
his appointment as Labour Party Home
Secretary in 2009.
Alan’s characteristic honesty and
authenticity shine through every word.
He will take us into a world which is both
familiar and strange, giving insight into the
Labour Party’s past, as well as a percipient
perspective on its future. This is politics as
you’ve never seen it before.
Rachel Cooke is an award-winning writer
and columnist at
The Observer
as well as
being the television critic at
New Statesman
.
