Fathomless Riches

Full Product Description

The Reverend Richard Coles is a parish priest in Northamptonshire and a regular host of BBC Radio 4's SATURDAY LIVE.

He is also the only vicar in Britain to have had a number 1 hit single: the Communards' 'Don't Leave Me This Way' topped the charts for four weeks and was the biggest-selling single of its year.

FATHOMLESS RICHES is his remarkable memoir in which he divulges with searing honesty and intimacy his pilgrimage from a rock-and-roll life of sex and drugs to a life devoted to God and Christianity. Music is where it began. Richard Coles was head chorister at school and later discovered a love of saxophone together with the magic of Jimmy Somerville's voice.

Against a backdrop of intense sexual and political awakening, the Communards were formed, and Richard Coles's life as a rock star began. FATHOMLESS RICHES - a phrase characteristic of St Paul and his followers - is a deeply personal and illuminating account of a transformation from hedonistic self-abandonment to 'the moment that changed everything'.

Funny, warm, witty and wise, it is a memoir which has the power to shock as well as to console.

It will be hailed as one of the most unusual and readable life stories of recent times.
