From Robert's birth into a Liverpool Catholic family, to his surreptitious sexual escapades and sado-masocistic fantasies and his final, evocative journey to a nursing home, his life unfolds in a sensational and explicit stream of consciousness. Skillfully depicted in three sections, in a synthesis of memory, of vividly recaptured moments of childhood, of isolation, lust, and adventure, time past and time present combine to paint a startling picture of a man fighting to accept his sexuality  - and his mortality.

Written and first published in 1984 and then in 1993 (currently out of print).

The Terence Davies Estate is in discussions to publish a new edition of Hallelujah Now towards the end of 2025.
