Alastair Campbell is the author of three novels. The latest, My Name Is . . ., is the story of a teenage girl's descent into alcoholism. No stranger to alcohol and mental health problems himself, Campbell is a leading ambassador for the mental health campaign, Time to Change. A former journalist, Campbell became Tony Blair's spokesman and then director of communications and strategy, from 1994-2003. He returned to frontline politics for the 2005 election. The five volumes of his diaries, the bestselling The Blair Years, cover this time.
