"This is a fascinating account of why—as well as how—Jeremy became leader of the Labour Party and transformed our politics. For anyone engaged in this movement, understanding precisely how we came to be where we are can only make us more effective as we go forward. That's why Alex Nunns' book is so important."—John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer


"If you’ve been inspired by the movement growing around Jeremy Corbyn, or simply want to know a bit more about the Labour leader’s unlikely rise to power, this is the book for you.”
—Liam Young, columnist, The Independent


“What Alex Nunns has achieved with The Candidate is remarkable. It's the real, inside story of the campaign to elect Jeremy Corbyn, from the ground up. It's as if someone has followed the participants with a video camera throughout, carefully detailing the important moments. But it's more than that: it bears all the hallmarks of someone who genuinely understands the decisive forces that made up the Corbyn moment. And Nunns communicates all this expertly. The book reads like a political thriller, and even though we all know the ending, it's nevertheless an enormously exciting read.”—Red Labour


“Grippingly told … Alex Nunns has done a real service in explaining [Corbyn’s] path to power.”
—Mike Phipps, Labour Briefing
