Born to working-class parents in a Derbyshire pit village in 1940, Ken Clarke was until recently the Father of the House in the Commons, having served continuously as an MP and, at times, as a minister since 1970. Written in 2016, Clarke’s memoir looks back on his years at Cambridge and practising law in Birmingham, a distinguished political career that ‘has coincided almost exactly with the beginning and end of Britain’s membership of the European Union’, and a life ‘coloured by good fortune’.
