Open Arms is a gripping international political drama from someone who has experienced much of the recent dramas in British politics first hand – Vince Cable. The author of bestselling commentaries on the financial crisis of 2007/8, The Storm and After the Storm, the almost uniquely likeable politician has turned his hand to the world of fiction, albeit that his subject matter stays very close to his own rich personal experience of the worlds of political power and government.
Sir Vince Cable is the leader of the Liberal Democrats and MP for Twickenham. He was the Liberal Democrat’s chief economic spokesman from 2003-2010, having previously served as Chief Economist for Shell from 1995-1997. He was Business Secretary under the Coalition Government from 2010-2015.
