Sam Smith recommends 'life-changing' book to fans

'Stay With Me' sensation Sam Smith has revealed that he just finished an amazing book called 'Holding the Man' by Australian writer, actor, and activist Timothy Conigrave. 

The book, which is a personal memoir, tells the story of Conigrave's life and his relationship with his lover of fifteen years, John Caleo.

Smith posted a photograph of the book's front cover to his Instagram page this morning (May 5) and told his fans that they should all read it because it's incredibly inspiring and changed his life:

"Sitting on the plane crying my eyes out at the end of this book. Honestly, I can't beg you all enough to read this. It's the most incredible thing I've ever read. Life changing. If only we could get all the homophobes in the world to read it."

The star, meanwhile, was recently forced to cancel a series of live Australian tour dates due to sustaining a vocal cord injury and he told his followers that he was gutted to have axed the shows, but he had no choice: “The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue.”
