Biteback is to publish the definitive insider account of Theresa May’s time in power. May at 10 by political and social commentator and official Downing Street historian, Sir Anthony Seldon, will tell the compelling inside story of the most turbulent period in modern British politics for 100 years.

It will describe how Theresa May arrived in 10 Downing Street in 2016 with the clearest, yet toughest, agenda of any Prime Minister since the Second World War: delivering Brexit. What follows defies belief or historical precedent. This story has never been told.

Including a comprehensive series of interviews with Theresa May’s closest aides and allies, and with unparalleled access to the advisers who shaped her premiership, Sir Anthony will utilise his vast experience to unpack what has been the most intriguing government and enigmatic Prime Minister of the modern era.

Sir Anthony, author of the bestselling biographies of four previous prime ministers, including the critically acclaimed Brown at 10 and Cameron at 10, says: ‘This is the story from inside the engine room, which is very, very different from how it looks from the outside. Only 25 people know what really happened. This story has the oil and sweat and authenticity of the seat of power.’

James Stephens, Publisher at Biteback, says: ‘We are delighted to be publishing Anthony’s account of Theresa May’s troubled time at No. 10. Anthony’s access is unparalleled, as is the quality of his analysis. His vast experience and ability to get to the heart of events in modern British politics (and its principal actors) puts him in a class of his own. Like his previous books, May at 10 will be a masterclass in political biography and history.’

May at 10 will be published in October 2019.
