All across Britain, a generation of grown-up children are graduating from university, moving back in to their old bedrooms and showing their gratitude by berating their parents for their out-of-date politics.

But for proud and high-profile left-wingers Emma and Eddie Hughes, the return of their only child is a far greater challenge than they ever could have anticipated. Young Dylan had warned them there was something personal he needed to tell them, but nothing could have prepared his right-on parents for the shocking revelation he delivers. Their son is a Conservative.

With his customary warm-hearted wit and razor-sharp political satire, John O’Farrell delivers another hilarious and entertaining dissection of the zeitgeist and offers a funny and insightful antidote to our divided times.
