9780091897840: A Young Man's Passage

A long way from the usual ghosted celebrity autobiography, this is Julian Clary's debut as a writer of huge talent. Julian has led a unique life. From boarding school, where unholy monks taught him the rudiments of glamour, alternative living and brutality, to art school in London, punk and alternative comedy revolution, finding out by practical trial and error whether he was gay or straight, his huge success as one of the most high profile gay man in the country, and the pain of losing those close to him whilst learning the high price of celebrity.

This is the first time he has voiced his private life and he will bring to its telling all the elegance, economy and integrity that have always informed his comedy. And, possibly, the odd double entendre.
