But a Who's Who entry can reveal only so much. Like all the great political lives - Churchill, Disraeli, Gladstone, Genghis Khan - Bolsover's is one of incident, drama and passion.
From the calm of Uckfield library to the demands of high office, a life on the run and a final confrontation with the authorities, The Making of Mr Bolsover is a moving, epic tale of a modern misfit and a political biography like no other.
