Join us for an evening with political journalist and author Sebastian Payne as he takes us inside the corridors of power and talks about his new book The Fall of Boris Johnson.

The Fall of Boris Johnson is the fascinating full account of how a prime minister lost his grip on power.

Sebastian Payne, Whitehall Editor for the Financial Times, tells the essential behind-the-scenes story, charting the series of scandals that felled Johnson: from the blocked suspension of Owen Paterson to Partygate, and, finally, the Chris Pincher allegations, which were the final death blow. This is the full narrative of the betrayals, rivalries and resignations that led to the dramatic Conservative coup.

With unparalleled access to those who were in the room when key decisions were made, Payne tells of the miscalculations and mistakes that led to Boris’s downfall, only two years after he first entered No.10 Downing Street. This is a gripping and timely look at how power is gained, wielded and lost in Britain today. The Fall of Boris Johnson will be the political book of the year! 

No one is better placed than Sebastian Payne to chart the downfall of one of the most divisive yet influential politicians of modern times. We look forward to welcoming Sebastian to Booka!
