GOLDEN BOY

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE / FAVOURITES -

Wal­lace be­came a BBC pro­ducer in his early 20s, over­see­ing award­win­ning projects such as Dead Ringers and The Mighty Boosh be­fore de­cid­ing that work­ing in an of­fice was no longer for him. Af­ter that, he chal­lenged Dave Gor­man to find 54 other Dave Gor­mans, started an ac­ci­den­tal cult, founded his own mi­crona­tion and spent six months say­ing yes to the kind of things he would nor­mally de­cline. His de­but novel, Char­lotte Street, was pub­lished in 2012, and his sec­ond, Who Is Tom Ditto?, ar­rived last year. In Oc­to­ber, Wal­lace pre­sented the 33rd Golden Joy­stick Awards at Lon­don’s IndigO2.
