My Book

Mike Bishop died in February 2011. Now Des has written a memoir inspired by the stage show, by the startling discoveries he made about his father’s background before he died, and by his own realisation of what it means to finally grow up.

The book is a funny, wise and unforgettable story of a father, a son and what really matters.

‘A totally compelling story about a father’s sacrifices, and the midlife awakening of an errant son… He brings honesty, perceptiveness and thirty-five years’ worth of bottled-up love’.
