A bestselling British novelist, Patrick Gale was born on the Isle of Wight. Before becoming a writer, Gale made his living with a series of odd jobs including, he writes, being ‘a typist, a singing waiter, a ghost-writer for an encyclopedia of the musical and… a book reviewer’. His first two novels, The Aerodynamics of Pork and Ease were published on the same day in 1986. Since then his books have included: Dangerous Pleasures, Rough Music, Notes from an Exhibition, The Whole Day Through, A Perfectly Good Man, A Place Called Winter and Take Nothing With You.
