Product Description

STRONG MEDIA PROFILE: A regular writer for the Guardian, Observer and Spectator, Leith has a strong profile in the media, and his memoir The Hungry Years has sold more than 25,000 copies to date (TCM).NEW READERSHIP APPEAL: The Cut that Wouldn't Heal is a break from William Leith's usual, comic and lighthearted norm. The book will be a stylish Demy, refreshing Leith's brand, and positioning the book for a fresh audience.UNIVERSAL THEMES: Beautifully written, with themes ranging from loss to alcoholism, childhood bullying to absent fathers, this book will resonate deeply with readers, and will be a true conversation-starter.William Leith has worked as a columnist and feature writer at the Independent on Sunday, the Mail on Sunday and the Observer. His writing spans a wide range of subjects, from food to celebrity, cosmetic surgery to fashion and film. He has written about African monarchs, political tension in Palestine, gold mining in the Klondike, Hollywood film directors, diet gurus and the death of James Dean. He is the author of three previous books: The Hungry Years, Bits of Me Are Falling Apart and The Trick.'Deeply moving ... A triumph' Justin Webb 'What might, in other hands, have been simply macabre becomes peculiarly mesmerising' Craig Brown, The Mail on Sunday Ten seconds before my father's death, I have a premonition - that the breath he is taking will be his last. William Leith's childhood was marked by his father's absences and as a consequence their relationship has always been a troubled one. Now, as his father lies dying, William reflects on the connections and ruptures that have marked their shared history. Can he ever really understand his father? Is there an explanation for the physical distance and emotional chasm that his father has maintained between them? And what was he running away from? Darkly comical and told with searing honesty, The Cut that Wouldn't Heal is a moving memoir about the pain of abandonment, grief and regret.A heartbreaking account of one man's quest to understand his fatherPRAISE FOR THE CUT THAT WOULDN'T HEAL: The Cut That Wouldn't Heal should be depressing, but it is in fact weirdly exhilarating, largely because the author tracks his own feelings, however untoward, with a darkly comical precision . What might, in other hands, have been simply macabre becomes peculiarly mesmerising.Honest without oversharing, William Leith is such a perfect writer . The Cut that Wouldn't Heal is a triumph and deeply moving. Wonderful.William Leith is a very fine writer, defined by a compulsive honesty: not the heavily-curated oversharing of social media culture, but the real, uncomfortable thing. This book, which deals in the sometimes absurdist agonies of grief - and indeed of life - is his best yet.A reckoning with the past by a writer whose past offers plenty to reckon with . Pacily written . satisfyingly structuredAn intensely readable study of love and regret.As mysterious and unsettling as a Cold War thriller - the search for self amidst the puzzle of a brilliant absentee father.PRAISE FOR THE TRICK: The Trick takes all of Leith's writing habits - his mazy streams of consciousness (few writers are quite so enamoured of, or good at, watching themselves think) and his love of axiom - and, if anything, ups the ante... Hugely enjoyable.PRAISE FOR THE HUNGRY YEARS: Compulsively readable. I gulped it down in a couple of greedy bites ... It is a powerful memoir ... it has the unusual qualities of heart and daring. In the end, these are what stay inside you.
