Dirty White Boy is a vivid mosaic of modern London, caught between the ghosts of the past and the uncertainties of the future. With an unforgettable cast of characters ranging from Chico the camp queen to Pam the Fag Lady (with guest spots by stars like Kathy Griffin and Graham Norton), these compulsively listenable true tales offer a wry panorama of Soho's rich and often raucous subcultures.

The human side of Soho
What did you like most about Dirty White Boy?
Just loved this book, the style of writing in diary/blog form keeps your interest in what could otherwise be a boring subject. I think the way the writer grows throughout the book is great, starting with some short clipped notes throw to more indepth character analysis, you feel he is becoming a valued member of the community.
What did you like best about this story?
The portrayal of characters is sympathetic and respectful. It could quite easily have been the other way, which would have ruined the really human side of the Soho story.
What does Bruce Donnelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Bruce Donnelly is a great narrator, who brings the story alive without turning it into a radio drama.
