Join Exeter Library’s Karen #InConversation with author Matt Cain talking about his new book The Secret Life of Albert Entwhistle.
Matt Cain is an author, a leading commentator on LGBT+ issues, and a former journalist. He was Channel 4’s first Culture Editor, Editor-In-Chief of Attitude magazine, and has judged the Costa Prize, the Polari Prize and the South Bank Sky Arts Awards.
Matt’s first two novels, Shot Through the Heart and Nothing But Trouble, were published by Pan Macmillan in 2014 and 2015, and his third, The Madonna Of Bolton, became Unbound’s fastest crowdfunded novel ever before its publication in 2018. Born in Bury and brought up in Bolton, Matt now lives in London.
Early Praise for The Secret Life of Albert Entwhistle:
‘This rollicking romance entrapped me! True in its detail and its scope, it is amusing yet heart-breaking. It will encourage tentative young gay people and reassure their parents. Its passionate declaration? That it’s never too late to enjoy being yourself.’
‘A bright, clear, sharply intelligent writer.’
‘A wonderful old-fashioned romance, with a serious side, a tender autumn love story that will have every
reader cheering on Albert from the sidelines. An utter treat.’
