'What happens to people like me who were once "pop" stars? Am I destined for a life of daytime television appearances, reunion tours and well-meaning strangers struggling to recognize me before hesitatingly asking "didn't you use to be Marc Almond?"'

Despite an impending 45th birthday, a milestone age that can often result in some sort of mid-life crisis, Marc Almond, singer and songwriter, is not quite ready to take his place on the 'they were once famous' line-up.

In Search of the Pleasure Palace, is Marc Almond’s search for meaning in life now that he is in the Indian summer of his career. In this rollercoaster journey, Marc goes in pursuit of the thrills, spills and bellyaches that made each day of his youth memorable and created an image of him that was decadent, debauched and worryingly misunderstood. From swingers nights in Henley-on-Thames to the lost absinthe bars of Barcelona, from Russia's surreal underbelly to the pre-Giuliani clean-up of New York, Marc is your observant guide to a world that he was once master of -- through fantastic, wry anecdote.
