Description

'There's no humour in having so many tumours'. Tom GK's hearing is going out with a bang! Former Daily Telegraph music critic and critically acclaimed storyteller combines laughter, song and genetic disease in this vaudevillian biography. A songwriter at age five, in bands at 16 (one genuinely called Miss Marple) and reviewing Bob Dylan and, well, Keane by 21, hearing loss was always a nightmare for Tom... Now, it's hilarious. 'A deft way with storytelling' (West Australian). 'Comedy sensation' (KidsInAdelaide.com.au). **** (WeekendNotes.com). 'Will leave you singing for joy' **** (FourthWallMedia.Wordpress.com).
