His new book, Forty Lies, is a vaguely chronological patchwork of forty (ish) personal stories which he says:

“don’t bear too much factual scrutiny but follow, amongst other things, the trials of Coming Out, dodgy boyfriends, police swoops, the stern presence of HIV/AIDS, the sex, the scene, love and bereavement”.

It even has some knitting patterns!

David will present, read and even do a bit of fortune-telling in this fun-packed hour hosted by Richard Foster.

Please be advised that this event covers adult themes.
