House Music Summary

House Music: The Oona King Diaries by Oona King

How does it feel to lose your job in front of ten million people? To ask a Government Whip for time to see your husband? To represent the Secretary of State for Health at a family planning clinic on the day you fail your fifth IVF cycle? To be loved and hated by people who don't even know you? To be the second black woman elected to Parliament? To be a Jewish woman representing a largely Muslim constituency? To be the only MP who likes house music? A decade is a long time in politics, and in these candid diaries Oona King shows how she has changed since becoming an MP in 1997. From the intense strain on her marriage, to her desperate struggle to have a baby, Oona reveals how she chose to abandon her political ambition in favour of another: to have a life.

House Music Reviews

'Oona King delivers the most intimate political diary ever ... the Bridget Jones of the Commons' Mail on Sunday 'Painfully honest, frequently hilarious ... She tells her story with humility, wisdom and considerable wit' Guardian 'Pacy, perceptive, frank, funny, free of the sludge of most political diaries. This is authentic Oona. It would make a good novel - but people would think it a little far-fetched' Neil Kinnock 'Tremendous - funny, revelatory, and above all authentic' David Hare
