John Crace
I, Maybot

The Rise and Fall

“The Maybot is rebooted as strong and humble. Stumble for short.”
“Kim Jong-May awkward and incredulous as journalist asks question.”
“Supreme leader produces pure TV Valium on The One Show.”

Throughout 2017 John Crace, the Guardian’s parliamentary sketch writer, has watched Theresa May’s efforts to remain strong and stable – and, indeed, Prime Minister. He coined the term ‘Maybot’ for her malfunctioning public appearances. And now, in this edited collection of his unremittingly witty sketches, he tells the full story of Theresa May’s turbulent first year in No 10.

As waspishly hilarious as Craig Brown’s diaries in Private Eye, I, Maybot is essential and hysterically funny reading for anyone trying to make sense of a political annus horribilis.

John Crace is the Guardian’s parliamentary sketch writer and writes the Digested Read for the Guardian’s G2 section. In 2014 he published I Never Promised You a Rose Garden: A Short Guide to Modern Politics, the Coalition and the General Election.
