Summary

Throughout 2017, John Crace, The Guardian's parliamentary sketch writer, watched Prime Minister Theresa May's efforts to remain strong and stable - and, indeed, 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 Westminster. 

As waspishly hilarious as Craig Brown's diaries in Private Eye, I, Maybot is essential and hysterically funny listening for anyone trying to make sense of our crazy political year.

Critic reviews

 “The Maybot clanks on unstoppably. John Crace’s satirical image has passed the definitive sales test – it’s been stolen. Universalised.” (John Sutherland, Spectator

awful narration

Good book but totally ruined by the awful narration. It's really really bad, almost as if it's a deliberate attempt to scupper the product. Truly the absolute worst narration ever. Ruined the experience. how do people like this get work?
