Absolutely one of his complete best. So many funny and tender and terrific scenes. He hovers between social comedy and apocalyptic tragedy without the move appearing artificial or contrived. Just a wonderful, wonderful read
— Stephen Fry

One of the UK’s best-loved authors talks to Fanny Blake about his new novel, Take Nothing with You, the heartwarming story of a young boy whose life is transformed by cello lessons.

Drawing partly on his own boyhood it explores what happens when childish hero-worshipping meets the reality of messy adult love lives. Patrick Gale’s previous books include Rough Music, A Perfectly Good Man, Notes from An Exhibition, and A Place Called Winter.
