Book of the week


My end-of-summer reading this week is Boris v Ken: How Boris Johnson Won London by Giles Edwards and Jonathan Isaby (our price £7.99+postage).

The London mayoral battle was both sensational and close. Here, written during the campaign, is the blow-by-blow account of the campaign by two of our leading journalists. The ups, the downs, the efforts of both the leading candidates to curb their natural daftness, the politics, the showbiz, the results and what they mean for Londoners – all these are described with a deft touch.
