I’m Reading ‘Jeremy Corbyn – Accidental Hero’ by W Stephen Gilbert

“Jeremy Corbyn – Accidental Hero was a book that I wrote at great speed and under great pressure in 72 days last autumn. It was published in November. Though it got no media coverage, it sold healthily and went into a reprint shortly before Christmas. I had understood that my editor wanted a second edition and hence an additional chapter, but what he wants from one day to the next is not always entirely clear. I have written an additional chapter which may or may not appear between book covers. For anyone who bought the first edition and for anyone for whom a substantial taster might confirm or otherwise any interest they may have in the book, I reproduce the extra chapter as I wrote it here:” – W Stephen Gilbert “has had a long and varied career in television, film, theatre, books, newspapers and magazines.”
