The 10th novel from Stanley Johnson (1959, English), Kompromat, has been published by Point Blank.

Kompromat is a satirical thriller that tells the story of 2016’s seismic and unexpected political events on both sides of the Atlantic. A referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, a country in shock and worried about its future, an unlikely – some would say unelectable – presidential candidate whose momentum somehow keeps increasing, and a Russian president who wants to destabilise the west – Kompromat is a fast-paced thriller from a British and European political insider.

‘It is a perfective time to publish,’ Mr Johnson told the Camden New Journal. ‘Obviously, I’m not trying to play politics with this book. My deep ambition here is just to write a readable book people can take on their summer holidays.’

The novel has been very well received since its release, and Channel 4 has purchased the rights for a six-part television adaptation.
