Paul Hickey's account of his life with Andy Bell is unflinchingly honest and unashamedly romantic. ‘Sometimes’ is the true story of a gay love affair that survives and thrives despite the pressures of the music industry, through highs and lows, in sickness and in health. Sometimes moving, sometimes shocking, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, it’s a warm, witty book that deserves a wide readership.
Contains rare and previously unreleased photographs.
Brutally honest. Paul doesn't paint himself in the most flattering manner which adds validity to his story. Paul puts himself out there and doesn't hold back. He talks about his addictions, bad decisions, vanity, anger, insecurity and strength. Andy, his partner, is uplifted as a saint in dealing with Paul's strokes and recovery. You enter the book thinking you are going to get lots of insight into Erasure and their rise to fame and how Paul was there backing it all up but instead you get a story of recovery from a stroke patient. The descriptions of his struggles to accomplish even the smallest task gives the reader some incredible, if not uncomfortable at times, insight. I was hoping to hear and learn more about Andy and Erasure since Paul has been the manager and partner, but these topics are just thrown in throughout the story. Overall it is an enjoyable read and ultimately a story about life and dealing with the unexpected.
