This is Tan France’s memoir, who some of you might recognise from Queer Eye. I’ve never watched it, although I have always meant to. Then this proof came along.
I’ve loved reading it and am as determined as ever to watch the show. Tan talks us through his life and all that comes with growing up a person of colour in South Yorkshire; as well as all that comes with growing up gay in a traditional South Asian family.
His tone is light and funny, sharp and pithy, and really gets to the marrow of life. Though he’s never attempting to speak for anyone but himself, his voice is universally relatable and very readable. It’s also interwoven with fabulous fashion tips and life advice!
