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.
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 - 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 - GUARDIAN
Beautifully written, disarmingly frank and utterly charming - MAIL ON SUNDAY
Richard's devastating honesty makes his journey from gay pop-star to celibate parish priest comprehensible even to atheists
