When he became leader of the Liberal Party in 1967 at the age of just thirty-seven, he seemed destined for truly great things.

But as his star steadily rose so his nemesis drew ever nearer: a time-bomb in the form of Norman Scott, a sometime male model with whom Jeremy had formed an ill-advised relationship in the early 1960s. Scotts incessant boasts about their affair became increasingly embarrassing, and eventually led to a bizarre plot to shut him up for good.

Jeremy was acquitted of involvement but his career was in ruins.Michael Blochs magisterial biography is not just a brilliant retelling of this amazing story- years in the making, it is also the definitive character study of one of the most fascinating figures in post-war British politics.
