Alan Johnson

The Long and Winding Road

The third volume of Alan Johnson’s bestselling memoirs takes us to the Westminster of 1997 and lifts the lid on the life of a hard-working constituency MP. Alan took to the corridors of power with great ease with his passionately held principles and his loyalty to his constituents. This Boy won the Orwell Prize in 2014; Please Mr Postman won the National Book Award for Autobiography of the Year 2014. Once again in this memoir, Alan’s honesty and authenticity shines through.

Alan Johnson is a Labour Party politician and has been the MP for for Hull West and Hessle since 1997. He has filled a wide variety of cabinet positions in both the Blair and Brown governments. Until 2011, he was Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer and recently led the Remain campaign for the Labour party.
