Author Patrick Gale - Take Nothing With You

Patrick Gale is the author of 19 novels, including Rough Music, Notes From an Exhibition and the Costa-nominated A Place Called Winter. His novels are often based on his life and family with music also playing a key role in his writing. 

When the main character in Patrick Gale's new novel is being briefed about the once-off post-operative treatment he'll undergo for thyroid cancer, he is told to bring nothing with him that he doesn't mind leaving behind. The treatment will make him radioactive for a day, contaminating anything and anyone he touches, and the nurse's instruction - the basis of the book's title - sets the mood for Gale's bittersweet story.
