A Parliamentary Affair by Edwina Currie
Elaine Stalker, newly elected MP, has worked hard for her election to Westminster. But the unequivocally masculine atmosphere of the House of Commons is a hostile environment for an attractive, ambitious woman and Elaine is disappointed when her talents are ignored. Relishing his powerful role as wheeler-dealer, whip Roger Dickson provides a sympathetic ear for Elaine's frustrations. At first their relationship is strictly professional; but a passion for politics provides an aphrodisiac and late-night sittings offer ample opportunities for discussions of a more private nature. A No. 1 hardcover bestseller on its first appearance, Edwina Currie's A PARLIAMENTARY AFFAIR has gained a compulsive piquancy in the light of her Diaries' publication.
