Ten top books about Thatcherism

Kwasi Kwarteng is Conservative MP for Spelthorne, Surrey, UK, and the author of Thatcher’s Trial: Six months that defined a leader.

One of his top ten books about Thatcherism, as shared at the Guardian:
The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst (2004)

Hollinghurst’s controversial and brilliant novel, which won the Booker prize in 2004, tells the story of a gay affair in the 80s, at the height of Thatcher’s political dominance. The Iron Lady herself is an ever haunting presence in the background of the story, although she is not integral to it.
