John O'Farrell: Things Can Only Get Worse

7th October 2017, 19:00 to 20:00, Palace Green Library, Durham

This is a Durham Book Festival event chaired by Head of the Durham University English Department, Professor Simon James.

In the follow-up to his classic memoir, Things Can Only Get Better, John O’Farrell takes us 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 non- selective 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.
