  1. Hello Adam, this is Juju from France, I heard about your novel a few days ago on BBC 4 and the people talking about it was so excited about it I ordered it on the spot, I received it on Saturday and couldn’t put it down, it’s really a fantastic read, probably my favorite of all the books I’ve ever read …

    … I was wondering if it will be translated into French (and other languages) because I would like my friends to read it, I’m sure non-English speaking gay people would enjoy it as much as English-speaking people, I know some straight people enjoy it too, maybe because everybody enjoys reading thrillers and books about a political-sexual scandal … and books that are breathtaking, captivating and sometimes heartbreaking

    I hope all is well with you and yours and am very much looking forward to reading the 2nd Tommy adventure !!

    Thank you,

    Juju from France

    • Hi Juju – really glad you enjoyed it so much! No plans for translations as yet, but if you wanted to tell any French publishers it would be a good idea, I’d definitely be up for it.
