You will not read this story of Dave and Nick anywhere else. Ann Treneman, the sketchwriter for The Times, chronicles all the highlights (and even more of the lowlights) of their extraordinary relationship in a love story that not even Mills & Boon could imagine. Two posh boys who found each other, a bromance to remember, full of love, hate, fratricide, war, riots, bad hair and even worse speeches, not to mention that sexy AV referendum. Through her perceptive sketches, Ann Treneman tells the story of how they dated, flirted with others (including the brooding hulkish Gordon), but eventually came together in a sun-kissed wedding in the Downing Street rose garden. She reveals how Nick struggled to be the perfect political wife while starting a new sub-career as a national hate figure, and chronicles Dave’s long and bruising battle with arrogance. She tells the shocking story of their arch rival, the man who killed his brother and got away with it. The nightmare of the grandparents, the mad aunts and uncles, the ambitious kids and the economy that simply would not do as it was told. This is the tale of two men and a screaming baby of a coalition, trying to stay true to each other when surrounded by political mayhem and madness. Laugh? Or cry (with laughter)? How about both?
