Authorized Margaret Thatcher Biography Coming in May

Knopf will publish the first volume of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher‘s authorized biography on May 21.

Margaret Thatcher: From Grantham to the Falklands will be the first of two books written by journalist Charles Moore. The $35 hardcover will be 912 pages long with 24 pages of photographs. Knopf plans a first printing of 100,000 copies. Here’s more from the release:

Drawing on an extraordinary cache of letters to her sister Muriel, Moore illuminates Thatcher’s youth, her relationship with her parents, and her early romantic attachments, including her first encounters with Denis Thatcher and their courtship and marriage. Moore depicts her determination and boldness from the very beginning of her political career and gives the fullest account of her wresting the Tory leadership from former prime minister Edward Heath at a moment when no senior figure in the party dared to challenge him. He writes about Thatcher’s close relationship with Ronald Reagan and her contentious relationship with Alexander Haig. The book also explores in great detail the obstacles and indignities that Thatcher encountered as a woman in what was still overwhelmingly a man’s world.
