Beskrivelse

The memoir of popular BBC Radio 4 SATURDAY LIVE presenter, the Reverend Richard Coles.

The Reverend Richard Coles is a parish priest in Northamptonshire and a regular host of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live. He is also the only vicar in Britain to have had a number 1 hit single: the Communards’ ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ topped the charts for four weeks and was the biggest-selling single of its year. Fathomless Riches is his remarkable memoir in which he divulges with searing honesty and intimacy his pilgrimage from a rock-and-roll life of sex and drugs to a life devoted to God and Christianity. Music is where it began.

Richard Coles was head chorister at school, and later discovered a love of saxophone together with the magic of Jimmy Somerville’s voice. Against a backdrop of intense sexual and political awakening, the Communards were formed, and Richard Coles’s life as a rock star began. Fathomless Riches – a phrase characteristic of St Paul and his followers – is a deeply personal and illuminating account of a transformation from hedonistic self-abandonment to ‘the moment that changed everything’. Funny, warm, witty and wise, it is a memoir which has the power to shock as well as to console. It will be hailed as one of the most unusual and readable life stories of recent times.
