An evening with John Crace, discussing his new book Depraved New World, featured in Waterstones Best Books of 2023.

From bestselling author and beloved Guardian columnist John Crace comes a blisteringly hilarious tour through the whirlwind of post-Brexit Britain, from the ousting of Boris to the dawn of a new era… sort of.

“O brave new world, that has such people in’t.” Or not. William Shakespeare clearly had never imagined a mess on this scale. Given the state of the country right now, he would be in need of a long lie down.

Another month, another prime minister – how many have we been through now? But fear not: despite all the nonsense that has spewed forth from Westminster over the past two years, John Crace’s brilliantly lacerating political sketches have provided the nation with some desperately needed relief.

Taking in everything from Partygate, Bo Jo’s drawn-out farewell and the disastrous reign of Liz Truss, to the psychodrama of the Tory leadership contest(s), the return of Rishi Sunak and the shenanigans of his impressively inept colleagues, Depraved New World is a worryingly funny collection which captures British politics at its most absurd.

John will be in conversation with broadcaster/writer Simon Fanshawe.

City Books will be selling copies of Depraved New World and other Crace titles on the night which John will sign in the lobby after the show.
