We are loving this book – it’s funny, intelligent and full of attitude! – Gay’s the Word
James Maker (singer, lyricist, writer & occasional actor) reads from his award winning memoir Autofellatio. It begins with his teenage years in Punk-era London, moving through the counter-cultural 1980s with an account of the Indie group Raymonde and his association with Smiths frontman, Morrissey.
Visiting the adventures of rock group RPLA, the filming of “Middleton’s Changeling”, and the party years of the 1990s, it closes with his relocation to, and observations on, life in Spain.
Free event with complimentary refreshments. Please RSVP at Gay’s the Word’s Facebook page.
Praise for Autofellatio
“Amazingly, this wonderful book began life as a self-published e-book before finding a publisher; think Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard finally finding Mr DeMille on her doorstep and you’ve got it. But with better shoes.” Julie Birchill
“James Maker, former lead singer with cult 80s Indie band Raymonde and 90s drag metal sensation RPLA…is writing a memoir. Glitteringly epigrammatic, it’s a glam rock Naked Civil Servant in court shoes. But funnier. And tougher. And what a memoir. It has one of the best, and unquestionably the most honest title for an autobiography ever: Autofellatio.” Mark Simpson
