'Number Ten' goes behind the door of the most famous address in the country, in a hilarious new novel from Sue Townsend.
Prime Minister Edward Clare and his wife Adele Huth (voted the cleverest woman in Europe; author of the bestseller 'God Is A Lesbian') live at Number 10 Downing Street. PC Jack Spratt is the policeman who stands outside on the door.
Five years ago, Edward Clare was voted into Number 10 after a landslide election result. But now, things are starting to go wrong. The love has gone. The people are turning. In short, it's a very real problem.
Edward worries about this. Has he accomplished anything? All he wants is for the people of Clare's Britain to like him, and for them to be happy. How can he find out what they really think?
Laugh-out-loud funny, subversive and yet touching, 'Number Ten' is the most perceptive examination of British life since 'The Queen And I'.
