Jennie Lee: A Life by Patricia Hollis

First published in 1997, Patricia Hollis's biography of the pioneering Labour MP Jennie Lee (1904-1988) won both the Wolfson History Prize and the Orwell Prize. It is the definitive study of this remarkable woman, her stormy political career, and her marriage to Aneurin Bevan. In a new preface to this edition Hollis adds insights into Lee's life which emerged subsequent to first publication, and also draws on her own experience as a Labour Minister from 1997-2005.

'Lee's lives and loves, passions and drives are beautifully and frankly explored in Patricia Hollis's compelling book.' THES

'Superbly researched, engrossingly written, scrupulously honest.' Gerald Kaufman, Daily Telegraph

'What makes it particularly fascinating is the author's own first-hand knowledge of politics and of the Labour movement.' TLS

'One of the best political biographies of recent years' Alan Watkins, New Statesman
