Summary

NEW, FULLY UPDATED EDITION

‘Brexit means Brexit.’ ‘Strong and stable.’ ‘I don’t think I’m in the least robotic.’

Ever since Theresa May first whirred into inaction as prime minister, there has only been one reliable source of strength and stability: John Crace’s political sketches for the Guardian. These doses of biting satire not only provided much-needed respite from the madness of it all, but also gave us his now notorious moniker for our automaton PM, the Maybot.

In I, Maybot, Crace introduces a curated selection of his most acerbic sketches, charting May’s tumultuous premiership to date. From the EU referendum and ensuing tragicomic leadership campaign, to the snap election, Tory–DUP coalition of chaos and endless Brexit wranglings, Crace’s analysis makes for essential and uproariously entertaining reading.

Critic Reviews

‘The Maybot clanks on unstoppably. John Crace’s satirical image has passed the definitive sales test – it’s been stolen. Universalised. ‘I am not a robot,’ Theresa May feebly protested. If the annual Samuel Johnson Prize were the Jonathan Swift Prize I, Maybot would win it hands down. Satire lives.’
