Leaving your childhood behind is easier said than done. Drawing in part on his own boyhood, Patrick Gale’s new novel explores a collision between childish hero worship and extremely messy adult love lives. It is a sad yet funny coming of age tale of resilience and survival, and the confusions of desire and reality. The novel is punctuated with music and there will be a live cello performance during the event to bring the narrative to life. Patrick is a bestselling author and one of this country’s best-loved novelists. Take Nothing With You is his fourth Sunday Times bestseller.
