Abbott,  “a titan” of British public and political life, Alpana Sajip, who acquired the book for Viking describes the inspiring woman. “She has inspired generations of Britons through her unwavering efforts, and we know that by sharing her story with the world, she will continue to do so,” said Sajip.

In the book, Abbott writes her life story revealing how a “bespectacled little girl” ended up as a prominent political figure. She said the deal was “a long-awaited chance to tell my own story, in my own words.

“My parents were part of the Windrush generation. Nobody could have guessed that their bespectacled little girl would grow up to be a British Member of Parliament,” she added. “This will be the story of that journey.”
