Gavin Esler is an award-winning television and radio broadcaster, novelist and journalist. He is the author of five novels and two non-fiction books, The United States of Anger, and most recently Lessons from the Top, a study of how leaders tell stories to make other people follow them. It’s based on personal encounters with a wide variety of leaders, from Bill Clinton and Angela Merkel to Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, and even cultural leaders such as Dolly Parton.
Gavin’s latest project is a short reality-check about the false promises offered by those arguing for our place outside the European Union. Brexit Without the Bullshit is published by Canbury Press.
