Backing Into Light: My Father’s Son

‘Most people who write about sex do so in a completely bizarre way, as if they have not only never performed any sexual acts themselves, but have never met anyone else who has done either. I can’t remember when I last read a book that was so authentic, convincing, wise and funny about sex as yours. My Father’s Son should be compulsory reading for bloody Lord Dear, all bishops and imams, and every prude and prig in the country. It’s a book that resonates thunderously for me: you make so much sense of things. You make such converts of your readers.’
