Fathomless Riches - Signed Copy, by the Reverend Richard Coles

The memoir of popular BBC Radio 4 SATURDAY LIVE presenter and former member of the Communards, the Reverend Richard Coles.

'I love @RevRichardColes SO MUCH' — Caitlin Moran

FATHOMLESS RICHES is the Reverend Richard Coles's warm, witty and wise memoir in which he divulges with searing honesty and intimacy his pilgrimage from a rock-and-roll life of sex and drugs in the Communards to one devoted to God and Christianity. The result is one of the most unusual and readable life stories of recent times, and has the power to shock as well as to console.

 

Biographical Notes 

The Reverend Richard Coles is the presenter of Saturday Live on BBC Radio 4. He is also the only vicar in Britain to have had a number-one hit single. He read Theology at King's College London, and after ordination worked as a curate in Lincolnshire and subsequently at St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, London. He is the author of Lives of the Improbable Saints and two memoirs, the bestselling Fathomless Riches and Bringing in the Sheaves. He lives in his parish of Finedon, Northamptonshire.

One of the most immensely readable - and redeemable - memoirs of the year. His book is an engaging account of eccentricity, curiosity and a profound spiritual journey. I give it a screamingly camp, happy-clappy thumbs up — Helen Davies, SUNDAY TIMES

Sex, drugs, death, religion, more sex, many more deaths - it has got it all. Like a sparkling old-style chasuble worn by a Spanish priest, it is difficult to ignore — Chris Bryant, GUARDIAN

He writes with charm and erudition and his take on 1980s Britain is fascinating — Virginia Blackburn, SUNDAY EXPRESS

Beautifully written, disarmingly frank and utterly charming — James Delingpole, MAIL ON SUNDAY

Richard's devastating honesty makes his journey from gay pop-star to celibate parish priest comprehensible even to atheists — Linda Grant

It is a tale of redemption and of a sinner come to transformation... The Church of England is all the better for having such a priest within its ranks. — Stephen Bates, LITERARY REVIEW
