John O’Farrell’s most recent book is Things Can Only Get Worse?; 20 confusing years in the life of a Labour supporter. It is the long-awaited sequel to his iconic first book Things Can Only Get Better? which was a number one best-seller and remains one of the most popular political memoirs ever written . In the decades in between, he has published five novels: The Man Who Forgot His Wife, May Contain Nuts, This Is Your Life, The Best a Man Can Get and most recently There’s Only Two David Beckhams. He has also written the bestselling history books An Utterly Impartial History of Britain and An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain
