The defining biography of Margaret Thatcher, written by a member of her inner circle
Robin Harris worked for the Conservative Party from 1978, and increasingly closely with Margaret Thatcher herself from 1985, writing her speeches and advising on policy. By the close of her premiership, he was probably the most trusted member of her political team at Downing Street, and he left Number Ten with her. As a member of her personal staff, he then drafted the two volumes of her autobiography and a further book on her behalf. After Margaret Thatcher's retirement from public life, Robin continued to see her regularly as a friend until her death.
"The political biography of the decade" Daily Mail "No-holds-barred, well-written... contains the most authoritative account of her life after leaving office... a dramatic account." -- Philip Webster The Times "[a] lively and accessible insider's account" -- Peter Clarke Financial Times "After all the eulogies, it is refreshing to read about an odd, driven, believable person - rather than some abstract national saviour or demon... Harris is like a long-faithful courtier freed by a monarch's death to speak the truth about them." -- Andy Beckett Guardian "Remarkable... A vivid and concise study in adversity, triumph and treachery." -- Daniel Johnson Standpoint
