A number of the sensational events described in ex-Labour politician Chris Mullin’s first novel, A Very British Coup, although set in the future, have subsequently turned out to be true. Will his new work of fiction, The Friends of Harry Perkins, have the same predictive qualities regarding post-Brexit Britain? If you want to know where we may be headed, Chris Mullin’s current novel, a gripping political thriller set against a Westminster background, may well be able to tell us.
Chris Mullin was a Labour MP for 23 years. A Very British Coup has twice been adapted for television.
