The DoSAC Files

The DoSAC Files

'It's the kind of f***-up that would normally have Malcolm Tucker, Number 10's Communications Director, the master of spin and the "Matrix" spitting blood ... No, the guilty party in this instance is none other than Tucker himself. The man who likes to keep an iron grip on every news item in the media and every policy announcement that comes out of the government, has only gone and LEFT A CONFIDENTIAL FILE ON A TRAIN: The DoSAC Files.'

Based around the idea that King of Spin Malcolm Tucker has lost a confidential and highly-damaging file on a train, this book is a collection of highly sensitive documents: personnel files, policy drafts, letters and emails, transcripts of phone calls, election campaign documents and top secret papers on the government's media strategy for wars and recessions. There are also more personal documents such as the early drafts of Tucker's diary, in no legal condition for publication. It's explosive stuff, which could end careers on both sides, including Tucker's own... From the team behind the award-winning and phenomenally successful The Thick Of It, and the Oscar-nominated In The Loop, comes the official tie-in book, The DoSAC Files. Written by the show's creator Armando Iannucci along with his co-writers Jesse Armstrong, Tony Roche, Simon Blackwell and swearing consultantIan Martin, The DoSAC Files looks set to be the political satire event of the year.
