Theresa May: The Enig­matic Prime Min­is­ter

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE - JOHN MEAGHER

Rosa Prince

Bite back, 400 pages, €15.40 Orig­i­nally rushed out when Theresa May was first in­stalled at 10 Down­ing Street, Prince’s bi­og­ra­phy has been com­pre­hen­sively up­dated and cap­tures what most agree has been a weak premier­ship.

The book ma­jors on May’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to break the glass ceil­ing and to out­ma­noeu­vre males col­leagues with their eye on the top prize — and there’s plenty of de­tail of what has been a fraught ten­ure in a Bri­tain fac­ing up to the im­pact of Brexit.

There’s a sense of the young May, too, al­though many have noted that as she care­fully guards her pri­vate life, bi­og­ra­phers will strug­gle to un­cover the sort of de­tail needed to re­ally get to the heart of who she is — a prob­lem Prince en­coun­ters, too.
