Things Can Only Get Worse
In the follow-up to his classic memoir, Things Can Only Get Better, John O’Farrell takes Durham Book Festival audiences on a rollercoaster ride through the last two decades of Labour.
Things Can Only Get Worse is the story of one political activist’s journey. Along the way, he stood for Parliament against Theresa May; was dropped from Tony and Cherie’s Christmas card list; and campaigned for a new nonselective inner-city state school…before realising this meant he had to send his kids to a non-selective inner-city state school.
Things Can Only Get Worse is for everyone who could use a good laugh after Brexit, Boris and Trump.
Chaired by Professor Simon James.
