Name: Lynch, Andrew (b. 16.10.1958); a.k.a. 'Mr Bolsover' Career: civil servant, librarian, columnist, local councillor, revolutionary. Recreations: shooting squirrels, skinning rabbits, cooking with rats. Address: present whereabouts unknown; last sighted in South Downs woodland close to the A275. Professional Interests: cataloguing systems, hermits, badger welfare, troglodytes, revolutionary politics But a Who's Who entry can reveal only so much. Like all the great political lives - Churchill, Disraeli, Gladstone, Genghis Khan - Bolsover's is one of incident, drama and passion. From the calm of Uckfield library to the demands of high office, a life on the run and a final confrontation with the authorities, The Making of Mr Bolsover is a moving, epic tale of a modern misfit and a political biography like no other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A minor masterpiece of the deadpan... a very, very funny book... genuinely original and written with understated intelligence" Sunday Telegraph "Very funny and charming" -- Kate Saunders The Times "A brilliant parody... Blending the sublime with the suburban produces some of the best humour, and Medvei has it down to a fine art" -- Stephen Coulson Lady "An exploration of how myths are engendered as much as it is a whimsical satire of political ambition... Very much in love with the Sussex countryside that it so beautifully evokes... Assured, precise prose" -- Philip Womack Literary Review "a master-piece of writing" -- Mags Fisk Nudge Book
