(R)evolution

A Daily Mail 'best TV and showbiz memoir' for 2020

From humble beginnings in Middlesex, where money was scarce but dreams were encouraged, to the award-winning godfather of electronica, Gary Numan has seen it all. His incredible story can be charted in two distinct parts . . .

The first: a stratospheric rise to success quickly followed by a painful decline into near obscurity. At school, Gary fell through the cracks of the system and was expelled. An unlikely but determined popstar, he earned his first record deal aged nineteen and, two years later, had released four bestselling albums and had twice toured the world. But, aged just twenty-five, it felt like it was all over. Gary's early success began to hold him back and he battled to reconcile the transient nature of fame with his Asperger's syndrome.

The second: a twenty-plus year renaissance catalysed by a date with a super-fan. Gary catalogues his fifteen-year struggle with crippling debts, his slow, obstacle-laden journey back to the top (and the insecurity that comes with that) and why Savage reaching #2 in 2017 meant more than the heady heights of 1979. Gary also candidly discusses the importance of his fans; why having Asperger's is a gift at times; the inspiration behind the lyrics; flying around the world in 1981; IVF struggles and the joy of fatherhood and his battle with depression and anxiety.

(R)evolution is the rollercoaster rise and fall (and rise) of one man, several dozen synthesisers, multiple issues and two desperately different lives. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, this is Gary Numan in his own words - a brutally honest reflection on the man behind the music.

Sy bevelvoerder - met al sy kontakte - weet dalk net waar sy is. Hy het dus geen keuse om die laaste sending aan te pak nie. Die vraag is: steek sy vrou dalk ook iets weg? Net tyd sal leer… Die leser word deel van Robert se sending na plekke soos Siprus Portugal en Beiroet waar hy vir Julia Breytenbach ’n Britse SIS-agent ontmoet. Daar is ook ’n aantal ander rolspelers om die gevaarlike Ursula Scheider vas te trek; sy wat die ontwykende koevert in haar besit het. Sal hulle haar kan vang voor die inligting in die verkeerde hande beland met katastrofiese gevolge vir Suid-Afrika? Ook: gaan Robert sy gevoelens vir Julia in toom kan hou?

What crime has been committed?
Who is the victim?
And who will solve the case?

Write a short crime story, using plot details crowdsourced on Twitter. This was the challenge we put to three Penguin authors - Nicci French, Time Weaver and Alastair Gunn. How different would the stories be? And how would the authors cope, with so much of the detail out of their hands?

Maybe next time you log in you'll wonder...

Are you following them, or are they following you?

This ebook is brought to you free of charge by Penguin, in association with Specsavers.

Look out for other titles by all three authors:

Thursday's Children by Nicci French, follows Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday as the fourth in the Frieda Klein series.

[vii]

Sewe is die getal van heiligheid, van voltooiing en vervulling, ’n volmaakte sirkel. Gilbert Gibson se vierde digbundel is ’n konfrontasie met die simboliese lading van hierdie getal, ’n woordestryd teen die wete dat voltooiing die einde beteken, dat volmaaktheid noodwendig ook die dood impliseer. Die verse verbeeld konkreet dat die poësie begin waar taal verbrokkel; dat die letterkunde juis ontspring uit die verbystering van sinne.
