We Have Lost The President is the first novel in Paul Mathews’ ‘We Have Lost’ comedy-thriller series starring downtrodden presidential spokesman Howie Pond and his journalist girlfriend Britt. Set in 2040s London, it’s packed with sharp British humour, crazy characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing from beginning to end. You’ll be transported to a low-tech, high-comedy, post-revolution Britain where the royals aren’t welcome and Buckingham Palace is now the centre of government. As well as painting an intriguing vision of the future, the story also casts an eye to the present – mixing satire with traditional British comedy around the trials, tribulations and absurdities of everyday life.
