Iain Dale talks to Damian Barr about his sensational memoir Maggie & Me. Published the week of Thatcher’s death, Damian recounts a story of abuse and ostracism set in the hard times of the 1980s in west Scotland, showing how the decisions of Westminster had an indelible effect on his childhood. Iain and Damian discuss their experiences of coming to terms with their sexuality while growing up in very provincial areas, and how modern-day attitudes have changed since the days of Section 28. Damian also gives us a run-down of the three books he will be reading over the summer, as well as other projects he is working on.
