'Adam Plowright's excellent book captures the strangeness of Macron's life' Evening Standard

THE FIRST BIOGRAPHY OF EMMANUEL MACRON IN ENGLISH

From total unknown to one of Europe's most powerful men in just a few years, at 39, France's youngest leader since Napoleon is intent on conquering the world stage.
But what lies beneath the facade of this youthful, ultra-confident and calculating president? How did someone from small-town France assemble -- in just 12 months -- the network, team and finances to win the presidency? Now elected, can he make the French feel better about themselves? Can he rally Europe around him and turn the tide of right-wing nationalism sweeping the continent? Critically, what will his presidency mean for Britain?
Featuring never-before printed interviews with key members of Macron's team, his friends, mentors and political detractors, acclaimed Paris-based journalist Adam Plowright asks: can the shine on this brilliant new president last?
And for how long?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Adam Plowright's excellent book captures the strangeness of Macron's life' -- Richard Vinen * Evening Standard *
'Eye-catching detail'
'For real insight into the remarkable rise - and character - of the new French president, Plowright's is the book to read'
'a highly readable and well-judged portrait of a fascinating character whose emergence on the world stage earlier this year took many outside France entirely by surprise.'
'Written in a highly approachable style, the book reveals how a combination of intelligence, charm and good fortune helped Macron get to the top, and also explores the possible pitfalls that lie ahead.'
