Staggering Hubris: The Memoir Of Boris Johnson’s Most Classic Spad: The ‘Rona Years, Vol. 1

By Megan Thomas

I’d say the title does a pretty good job conveying the tone of the book if you haven’t read it. I included it in my end-it-year round up for Buzz Magazine, which you can read here.

I found this was a great public transport read, as the daily diary entries mean stopping and starting is almost encouraged. You are, however, at risk of guffawing on the Northern Line. So, here she (my Kindle) sits on Southern Rail, enjoying the empty carriage.

“This satirical romp is a tonic at the end of what can only be described as a tiresome year. Its timing? Well, that’s just a bit of good luck, right? Written in supposed diary format by Rafe Hubris, BA (Oxon), a young 20-something working at 10 Downing Street during the coronavirus outbreak and chronicling each day of 2020, it’s simultaneously scathing and tongue-in-cheek, and ought to provide the laugh you need to stop you from crying instead.”
