Simon & Schuster to publish Miliband biography
2nd September 2010
A biography of the Labour Party's David and Ed Miliband has been acquired by publisher Simon & Schuster UK.
Provisionally entitled Miliband, the book has been written by former BBC political correspondent Lance Price and Guardian political correspondent Allegra Stratton.
Price, who worked as a media adviser for former prime minister Tony Blair, has previously written works such as Where Power Lies: Prime Ministers vs The Media, while Stratton is the author of Muhajababes: Meet the New Middle East.
'The Milibands make for a fascinating story - from their parents' escape from the Nazis in wartime Belgium to David and Ed's careers at the heart of New Labour,' Price commented.
Stratton added that the Milibands are the 'most compelling set of political brothers since the Kennedys' and claimed the biography will hint at what it would be like if either won the Labour Party leadership race and eventually became prime minister.
The announcement of the new biography comes after Blair published his memoirs - A Journey - which reveal intimate details of his relationship with Gordon Brown, his decision to take the UK to war with Iraq and how he coped with the stresses of power.
