Jimmy Nail has been a household name since Auf Wiedersehen, Pet hit our screens in the 1980s. Since then, his career as an actor and a musician has put him on the silver screen alongside Madonna and given him a No. 1 hit single.

Success on this astonishing scale was beyond the wildest dreams of the working class lad whose harsh childhood and brutal schooling put him on a collision course with Strangeways. But a short spell in prison helped propel Nail onwards and upwards. With the support of his friends and family, it wasn't long before Jimmy's unique talents and single-minded determination brought him attention of a different kind - and changed his life for ever.

In A Northern Soul , Jimmy Nail tells his own vivid story in this intriguing, inspiring and sometimes confounding account of how one man rose to fame and fortune by refusing to be anything but himself.
