Nick Clegg: The Biography
I'm excited to announce that BiteBack will be publishing the first biography of the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, in the summer of 2011. So far the book only has a working title, “Nick Clegg: The Biography”, it will chart Nick Clegg’s early years right up until the AV referendum and find out exactly who is the man behind the politician.
Chris Bowers will be the author of the biography. Bowers, 49, is a journalist and commentator, and author of the recent best-selling biography of the tennis ace Roger Federer. He also works as a communications consultant for the European Federation for Transport & Environment and is a Lib Dem district councillor in East Sussex, working loosely with Clegg on revising the Lib Dems’ environment policy in the run-up to the last Lib Dem leadership election.
Bowers is an experienced biographer and will provide a comprehensive account of Nick Clegg’s life. Bowers will start with Clegg’s time at Westminster School, tracing his rise through the Lib Dem ranks until his eventual appointment as Deputy Prime Minister, and will culminate in the result of AV referendum.
