The Long and Winding Road is the third volume in Alan Johnson’s award-winning memoir. Johnson takes us to the corridors of Westminster – from his early political skirmishes as a trade union leader to his appointment as Labour Party Home Secretary in 2009. Alan’s characteristic honesty and authenticity shine through every word. He will take us into a world which is both familiar and strange, giving insight into the Labour Party’s past, as well as a percipient perspective on its future. This is politics as you’ve never seen it before.
