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

'I love @RevRichardColes SO MUCH' Caitlin Moran

FATHOMLESS RICHES is the Reverend Richard Coles's warm, witty and wise memoir in which he divulges with searing honesty and intimacy his pilgrimage from a rock-and-roll life of sex and drugs in the Communards to one devoted to God and Christianity. The result is one of the most unusual and readable life stories of recent times, and has the power to shock as well as to console.

MEDIA REVIEWS

One of the most immensely readable - and redeemable - memoirs of the year. His book is an engaging account of eccentricity, curiosity and a profound spiritual journey. I give it a screamingly camp, happy-clappy thumbs up - Helen Davies, SUNDAY TIMES

Sex, drugs, death, religion, more sex, many more deaths - it has got it all. Like a sparkling old-style chasuble worn by a Spanish priest, it is difficult to ignore - Chris Bryant, GUARDIAN

He writes with charm and erudition and his take on 1980s Britain is fascinating - Virginia Blackburn, SUNDAY EXPRESS

Beautifully written, disarmingly frank and utterly charming - James Delingpole, MAIL ON SUNDAY

Richard's devastating honesty makes his journey from gay pop-star to celibate parish priest comprehensible even to atheists - Linda Grant

[O]ne of the most readable memoirs of 2014 - Helen Davies, SUNDAY TIMES - Books of the Year 2014

It is a tale of redemption and of a sinner come to transformation... The Church of England is all the better for having such a priest within its ranks. - Stephen Bates, LITERARY REVIEW

Full of wit and humour about finding god, and Jimmy Somerville. - Katy Guest, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY - Books of the Year 2014

Richard Coles has achieved a rare thing in writing an astonishingly honest autobiography, which, alongside the sex and drugs, presents Christian faith in a way that will surely be invitingly intriguing to an audience well beyond the church ... An immensely enjoyable memoir, whether a reader's primary interest is the music industry, the impact of AIDS, the Church of England, or a wonderfully Anglican combination of all three. - The Revd Christopher Landau, CHURCH TIMES

Witty, honest and - no pun intended - irreverent, it is very much a personal and at times hearbreaking account about what it was like ot be day during the period with a bit of pop-world gossip thrown in as well. Readable to say the least. - MORNING STAR
