Forget pigs and carthorses and bring on the Big Beasts, because Animal Farm has been reimagined. This time it's the creatures in the zoo that have decided to take back control. And instead of a parable about the evils of communism, the fable is the life of Margaret Thatcher. It's 2010, and Baroness Thatcher (a lappet-faced vulture) is losing it. And so she's an unreliable narrator: grand, uncompromising, deluded. But before she drops off her perch, it's time to set the record straight. What turned a grocer's daughter from Grantham into the most powerful woman in the world? What put all that infamous iron into her soul? And it's also time to take a satirical swipe at other, more recent prime ministers. Who is the battle-scarred rhino caught in the glare of the spotlights? And why does he agree with Nick? What animal is David Cameron? And why would Lady Thatcher want to inspect some organ that has been inserted into the mouth of a pig? `Hilarious - sometimes devastatingly so.' - Lindsay Clarke, prize-winning author of The Chymical Wedding
