Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has signed an agreement to write an autobiography of his tumultuous time in office, which began with a promise to finalize Britain’s exit from the European Union and ended with scandal and his resignation.
Publisher HarperCollins announced Monday that the as-yet-untitled book will be an autobiography of a prime minister “unlike any other.”
Johnson became prime minister in July 2019 and took Britain out of the EU the following year. During his government, the coronavirus pandemic arrived, he even contracted the disease and ended up in intensive care, in the end he was involved in scandals about his finances and ethics.
He was forced to resign in July 2022 after dozens of members of his government resigned in protest.
No publication date has been given for the book, which will be released in Britain by Harper Collins’ William Collins imprint. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
“I am looking forward to working with Boris Johnson as he writes his account of his time in office during some of the most momentous events in the UK in recent memory,” said Arabella Pike, editorial director of William Collins.
Johnson, who was a journalist, has written several books, including “The Churchill Factor,” about Prime Minister Winston Churchill. In 2015 he signed a book deal on William Shakespeare, originally scheduled for publication in 2016, but later delayed indefinitely.
