Description

His shrewd observations of the people who inhabited his small world are offset by his young mind’s love of fantasy and far off worlds. A poignant and painfully funny memoir about growing up gay in Thatcher’s Britain, it won Sunday Times Memoir of the Year, and was BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. His work has appeared in the Times, Independent, Telegraph, Financial Times, Guardian, Evening Standard, and Granta.

Damian, his sister, and his Catholic mum move in with her violent new boyfriend while his Protestant dad shacks up with the glamorous Mary the Canary. The 20th edition of Scotland's largest film festival will run from 28 February to 10 March at Glasgow Film Theatre (itself celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024) plus venues across the city. He recounts with evident pride a story about interviewing an old civil servant, who says that Maggie would have liked him, given who he is and what he's achieved. What I would say, and this concerns the author, is that: for someone who at a young age had to deal with the separation of his parents; bullying, bigoted prejudice and abuse- the boy succeeded, he stuck to his guns, was true to himself and let his natural intelligence and work ethic lead him to become the man that he clearly is. The surprisingly funny and positive story of growing up gay in a working-class town in Thatcher's Britain.

We will be collaborating with film and video students from New College Lanarkshire to create a short documentary about the making of the production. There have been days when it’s felt like a kind of therapy, but there have definitely been days when I have thought ‘I just can’t do this’.

Barr's hometown of Newarthill and Carfin are nothing more than a short walk from Motherwell, and at this time, towns servicing the employment needs of the famous Ravenscraig Steelworks.TRNSMT Festival has announced 23 more acts to the already star-studded lineup for this summer’s three-day Glasgow Green extravaganza. Some of the area has improved, with new people moving into new housing developments due to the excellent transport links in the area. Indeed not, instead this book covers issues that are widespread even today, some 30 years on from the period of time that Barr starts discussing his experiences. Damian Barr sifts through the wreckage of a horrific childhood and manages to extract humour, generosity of spirit and ultimately joy.
