A tale of historical and political ‘faction’ from debut author Simon L Baxter.
The world’s first Post-Truth novel, Jeremy and Corbyn is the answer to the challenge of the moment for political fiction writers everywhere.
A fictional re-telling of the real events of 2015, including actual speeches and debates mischievously re-spun, the fictitious world of ‘Jeremy and Corbyn’ speaks a profound truth about the stranger-than-fiction political era we have now entered.
Friends since childhood, Jeremy and Corbyn grew up to be very different people, yet maintained their friendship through a combination of inertia and routine. Now all that is about to be put to the test.
Austerity Britain, the Scottish referendum, Labour’s general election defeat, the mass migration of refugees into Europe, the crisis in Greece, and, of course, the Labour Party leadership contest; around these tumultuous events a story is woven of an establishment in crisis; of hope and alienation; of Reform and Revolution.
Join Jeremy, Corbyn, a shadowy right-wing network known only as the ‘Inner Steel’, a Greek student named Amalia, and a cat called ‘El Gato’, as they navigate a period in political history where everything changed, and nothing would ever be quite the same again.
