This is a biography of one of the most compelling and contradictory figures in modern British life. Born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, to most of us he is just 'Boris' - the only politician of the age to be regarded in such familiar, even affectionate terms.

If you thought Boris Johnson was an amiable politician with a flair for buffoonery then think again. This biography spares no-one as it draws aside the veil of bluster and self mockery to reveal the ruthless ambition and Machiavellian machinations that drive the real Boris. The fluster and bluster serve only to divert attention from his scalpel sharp intellect and erudition. Females, folies de couer and fraught family backgrounds - its all here. A bit densely written, the pace slows about a third of the way through but stick with it and skip to the juicky bits and you will be rewarded with a new view of our future prime minister!!
