Biteback Publishing has bagged a book by its founder and broadcaster Iain Dale with radio producer Jakob Szweda, containing some of Boris Johnson’s most memorable quotes and gaffes.
The Big Book of Boris, illustrated with specially commissioned cartoons, will be released on 19th September. World rights were acquired by editorial director, Olivia Beattie, direct from the authors.
It includes gems such as: “My chances of being Prime Minister are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.”
The synopsis explains: “There are few politicians who could genuinely be described as a phenomenon. Johnson is undoubtedly one. With a shake of that foppish blond mop, a glimmer of his madcap smile and the voice of a demented public school boy, he provides comedy gold every time he opens his erudite mouth.”
