Election Rides

By Edward Pearce

Published Jan 2010

Election Rides is the story of how three men went to the country, and only one returned… Written with Pearce’s blend of fun and cool irony, it records his journey through nineteen constituencies from Finchley to Huntingdon via Selly Oak, Cardiff and Edinburgh. He reveals: the stories that didn’t hit the headlines, what the constituencies secretly thought about their candidates, what it really took to win a fierce and furious election.
