Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction

'Tom Allen is one of the funniest comedians in the UK, the best-dressed man I know, and now it turns out he is a superb writer' - Josh Widdicombe

In Too Much, with his trademark wit and insight, Tom Allen takes a funny and moving look at how he's been thrown into adulthood, as he finally leaves the family home and starts a relationship with a new boyfriend. He shares his unwillingness to move on from the arrested development of millennial life.

But ultimately, he has to grow up fast in the wake of the unexpected death of his father in late 2021. The book becomes an emotional ode to his beloved dad and how you learn to navigate grief. Tom writes beautifully about those days, weeks and months following his family's bereavement, and how bewildering the minutiae and practicalities of life can be when you're harbouring a loss, and life can all feel all too much...
