John Crace – Decline and Fail
An unremittingly hilarious skewering of three years of Brexit nonsense, from the bestselling author of I, Maybot.
There is now only one certainty in life. When things can't possibly get worse, they absolutely will. And so, after three years of Maybot malfunctioning and Brexit bungling, welcome to BoJo the clown's national circus – where fun for none of the family is guaranteed.
Fear not, however: Decline and Fail is your personal survival guide to the ongoing political apocalypse. This unremittingly entertaining collection of John Crace's lifegiving political sketches will get you through the darkest of days – or failing that, will at least help you see the funny side. Miss it at your peril…
‘The Maybot clanks on unstoppably. John Crace’s satirical image has passed the definitive sales test – it’s been stolen. Universalised. ‘I am not a robot,’ Theresa May feebly protested. If the annual Samuel Johnson Prize were the Jonathan Swift Prize I, Maybot would win it hands down. Satire lives.’
