a queer life in suburbia

‘Excellent – I inhaled it, I absolutely loved it!… it’s moving, and funny…It’s a beautiful, beautiful read…for anyone who wants to laugh and be charmed’
CLAUDIA WINKLEMAN, BBC Radio 2

‘Wonderfully funny, utterly charming and sharp as all Hell’

SARAH MILLICAN

‘Tom Allen is one of the funniest comedians in the UK, the best dressed man I know and now it turns out he is a superb writer. I hate him’
JOSH WIDDICOMBE

~~~~~

When I was 16 I dressed in Victorian clothing in a bid to distract people from the fact that I was gay. It was a flawed plan.’

No Shame is a very funny, candid and emotional ride of a memoir by one of our most beloved comedians. The working-class son of a coach driver, and the youngest member of the Noel Coward Society, Tom Allen grew up in 90s suburbia as the eternal outsider.

In these hilarious, honest and heart breaking stories Tom recalls observations on childhood, his adolescence, the family he still lives with, and his attempts to come out and negotiate the gay dating scene. They are written with his trademark caustic wit and warmth, and will entertain, surprise and move you in equal measure.
