Over-sharing as an art-form  ~  Julian Clary

“Funny, outrageous and at times deeply moving… McG is a fabulous raconteur… a riveting page turner.”  ~  Martin Unsworth, Starburst magazine

“McGillivray is a supremely entertaining and self-deprecating storyteller. A fearless dirt-disher with zero filter, his memoir Little Did You Know is a wild ride through a filthy and fabulous outlaw life full of sex, drugs and stage 'n screenwriting.” Alan Simmons, Live For Films

“I was so surprised by the soul-baring honesty of this immersive memoir… a tremendous read that could be our book of the year. Allan Bryce, The Dark Side

 

LITTLE DID YOU KNOW is the eagerly-awaited autobiography of writer, critic, journalist, broadcaster and all round raconteur, David McGillivray.

FAB Press Exclusive Signed are shipping from FAB Press now, with the book not hitting mainstream stores or any other online retailers until later in the year.
 


In this sensational memoir, illustrated with many previously unseen photos, McGillivray reveals how his anti-establishment lifestyle stretches back to his teenage years and journeys six decades, taking us through the cocaine-lined world of London’s media industry, the tragic heights of the AIDS epidemic and the sinful celluloid backstreets of Soho. It’s a colourful picaresque account of the capital from every angle.

Described by Jonathan Ross as “a comedy legend”, Alan Jones as “a horror icon” and Matthew Sweet as “the Truffaut of smut”, David McGillivray has enjoyed a varied career in many areas of lowbrow entertainment. But not even his closest associates, let alone fans of his horror films and comedy plays, could have predicted the extraordinary turn his career took around the turn of the 21st century.

From 1998–2011, McGillivray hosted London’s wildest parties at his home in London’s sleazy King’s Cross district. They were attended by some of the biggest names of stage, screen, music and fashion. The revelations of what went on under the figurative noses of law enforcement agencies and the literal noses of "McG" and his high-flying guests are not for the faint-hearted.

The confessions of this outrageously funny man may amaze and amuse, scandalise or shock you. And you may never look back on Millennium Night in quite the same light again...

Little Did You Know is disgraceful, indefensible… and utterly unforgettable.

 

About the Author

The grandson of an acrobat, David McGillivray knew from the age of four and a half that he wanted to get into the movies. His wish was granted virtually from the day he was expelled from school – except that, instead of starring in films, he packed them. Briefly the UK’s youngest film critic, McGillivray wrote his first film – a travelogue about Yugoslavia – when he was 23, then moved on to a succession of cheap shockers and skin flicks. After Prime Minister Thatcher dealt killer blows to the UK’s independent film industry, McGillivray found alternative employment in radio, TV and theatre, becoming Julian Clary’s long-serving scriptwriter. Around the year 2000 he put these careers temporarily on hold to dabble in another form of exploitation, but one closely associated with the more secretive side of show business. This is all revealed in his latest book, Little Did You Know: The Confessions of David McGillivray.
