Acts of Faith
Acts of Faith:
Adam Faith biog., Macmillan 1998


Born under a kitchen table during German V-2 rocket attack that nearly killed him, Adam Faith’s life always threatened to be extraordinary. On Face to Faith, this terminally good-looking man was the first person to admit – on national TV – to enjoying pre-marital sex. And lots of it. Acts of Faith is full of that same James Dean spirit, and speaks both of the man and his age.

Excerpts: ‘Before the curtain even had a chance to fall, I took off at a pace that wouldn’t have shamed a cheetah on heat. I hit that dressing room at a hundred miles a second. The girls had got bored with waiting and had decided to practice the tango, stark naked, on a table in the middle of the room. In their high heels. But before I got the chance to consult my Victor Sylvester handbook on ballroom dancing, someone was banging on the door. ‘I prised open the door just enough to squint out. Panic flooded my head. Vivien Leigh, one of the world’s all-time most celebrated actresses, star of Gone WithThe Wind, and A Streetcar Named Desire, and one of the all-time good lookers was here, at my dressing room door. I was supposed to invite her in. What the hell was I going to do?’
