Reviews

It's a terrific read, filled with juicy detail and driven by sympathy for a man who was feted as a national hero but was extremely hard to like * The Times *
Alone is more than a sports biography. ...it is a timely reminder of the fine boundary between sport and art and the courage it took, and still takes, to be a gay athlete. * Sunday Times *
A moving and explosive biography of an ice skating genius * Manchester Evening News *
A fascinating exploration of a tragic talent * Attitude *
