From the Publisher

Product description


Doherty wasn't just at the heart of that era, he defined it, in ways both good and bad. Who better to capture the excitement but also the bleakness of that period than him? -- Hadley Freeman ― Guardian

Reveals unexpected details . . . Intimate, often salacious ―
Sunday Times

Lucid, candid and, ultimately, hopeful ―

Expertly pieced together . . . An extraordinary hymn to indie's own Rimbaud and degenerate noughties London ―

A defiant and humorous look at one of the most infamous rockers of the 21st century ―
Far Out Magazine

[A]n easily digestible page-turner . . . plenty of new stories ―
i News

Overloaded with compelling stories - many funny, some haunting ―
New Statesman

Book Description

The long-awaited, candid memoir from Peter Doherty, whose talent as a musician has more often been eclipsed by a Herculean appetite for self-destruction: drugs, prison, prostitution, court, murder, death, robbery, car crashes and hospital emergencies.
