James Heale, author and political correspondent at the Spectator will share insights and stories from his recent book, Out of the Blue: The Inside Story of the Unexpected Rise and Rapid Fall of Liz Truss. The Sunday Times named it their Politics Book of the Year and described it as ‘An insightful and at times riotously entertaining account of Britain’s 56th Prime Minister. What was intended as a prologue to her premiership is now a riveting political obituary in which every page drips with the seeds of both triumph and disaster. It has elements of tragedy but is frequently very, very funny.’

Heale has spent six years working on Fleet Street, including three at the Spectator, running the Tory Bible’s gossip column and working in the parliamentary press gallery.
