Gyles Brandreth Interview on Memoir writing & Odd Boy Out

By UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities, on 5 October 2021

We welcome Gyles back to the Shelf Healing podcast, this time to talk all about his new Memoir Odd Boy Out and how he found writing memoir. We talk about how he chose what to write in his memoir, and how different it is to writing any other type of book, especially for someone who has written prolifically and many biographies.

Gyles also talks about the relationships between sons and fathers, why diary writing is important, and how he’s crammed as much wisdom and gossip as possible in his new book!

Also a big shoutout to libraries!
