Dusk author: Patrick Gale

Patrick Gale was born on the Isle of Wight in 1962. He studied at Winchester College before reading English at New College, Oxford. In 1988 he moved to Cornwall where he  still lives with his husband, the farmer and sculptor, Aidan Hicks, at Land’s End.

His novels include Little Bits of Baby (1989), The Cat Sanctuary (1990), The Facts of Life (1995), Tree Surgery for Beginners (1998), Rough Music (2000), A Sweet Obscurity (2003), Friendly Fire, Notes From an Exhibition (2007), The Whole Day Through (2009), A Perfectly Good Man (2012) and A Place Called Winter (2015). There are also two collections of short stories, Dangerous Pleasure (1996) and Gentleman’s Relish (2009).

In 2017 his Man in an Orange Shirt was screened by BBC2 as part of the Gay Britannia season, which also featured the documentary All Families Have Secrets – the Narrative Art of Patrick Gale. Patrick’s next novel, Studies for Resilience will be published in September 2018. He is currently working on a feature film adaptation of a Rose Tremain short story, and television adaptations of one of his own novels and of an early 20th century classic…

Patrick’s story for Dusk, Sleep Tight, a deliciously creepy story involving moths, will be performed at Ellon and Redruth on 21st December, thus topping and tailing the event. As it is already published (in Gentleman’s Relish) it won’t be in the book.
