I, Maybot : John Crace & Political satire RBF

November 17, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free - £9.99

The Maybot is rebooted as strong and humble. Stumble for short.

Kicking off the weekend early is the Guardian’s parliamentary sketch writer John Crace, who joins us for the launch of his new book I, Maybot – The Rise and Fall. John Crace has witnessed and waspishly recorded the strong and stable leadership provided by our android overlord, Theresa May. I, Maybot chronicles the first (and potentially only) year in power of the Prime Minister, replete with incisive wit.

Throughout 2017 John Crace has watched Theresa May’s efforts to remain strong and stable – and, indeed, to remain Prime Minister. He coined the term ‘Maybot’ for her malfunctioning public appearances. And now, in this edited collection of his unremittingly witty sketches, he tells the full story of Theresa May’s turbulent first year in No 10. As waspishly hilarious as Craig Brown’s diaries in Private Eye, I, Maybot is essential and hysterically funny reading for anyone trying to make sense of a political annus horribilis.
