Bloomsbury will publish my new book in the UK this Thurs 13 February 2014. Both a personal journey and a portrait of my mum and dad, it is a story of the post-war years, ambition and stardom, family roots and secrets, life in clubs and in care homes. It is also about who we are, where we come from, and how we love and live with each other for a long time. (The US edition is due June 2014.)
Join me at the launch event at Rough Trade East, hosted by journalist and broadcaster, Andrew Collins. Reading, interview and signing.
I've also posted a Soundcloud link of me reading the opening pages.
