He reveals the stories behind the hits as well as the ups and downs of his remarkable life and career, while charting the nature of success – from his early heydays to the subsequent fallow years the 1980s to his later period of his artistic renaissance.
Accompanying this discussion will be a very special performance of songs of significance to Sir Tom, including a number of tracks from the accompanying sound track album to the book, entitled Long Lost Suitcase.
