Ben Watt - Romany and Tom: Piecing Together My Parents’ Lives

Saturday 10 May 2014, 14:30

Ben Watt (Everything But The Girl) has written a funny and moving memoir chronicling his parents’ lives.

Both a personal journey and a portrait of his parents, Romany and Tom is a vivid story of the post-war years, ambition and stardom, family roots and secrets, life in clubs and in care homes. It is also about who we are, where we come from, how we love and live with each other for a long time.
