Product description

Review

A companion to Lydon s 1994 memoir, Rotten. His life is rich enough to warrant another . . . and he s a gifted enough writer to make it a fun read. --Billboard"

It is clear that, though fond of zingers and political put-downs, Lydon is also a serious and thoughtful artist, bookish and unafraid of hard work, and thus serving as a model citizen in a more ideal republic than ours . . . A lucid, literate pleasure. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

A great autobiography, if you enjoyed "Rotten," then you ll enjoy this too . . . Lydon is always engaging, challenging and entertaining. --The Register (UK)"

Coarse, plain-speaking and mischievous, pitched somewhere between Dennis the Menace and Diogenes the Cynic. --Financial Times"

Ridiculously entertaining . . . His tales of a near-Dickensian life in Sixties working-class London suggest how an inchoate rebel found his purpose in punk. --Telegraph"

Fascinating . . . both elegant and blunt. --The Guardian"

Fills in the gaps that his previous autobiography, ROTTEN left wide open, notably his pre-Sex Pistols days, while also going over old ground with a fully-toothed rake . . . fascinating. --Irish Times"

John Joseph Lydon s new autobiography isn t just about his incarnation as Johnny Rotten, but his upbringing, youth and, later, Public Image Limited and further intrigues. His passion and his intellect remain an inspiration. --NME"

A ripe, breathless romp through an extraordinary life . . . But this is a serious book too, about how poverty and illness can create pain that can be turned into something positive, presenting a man keen to fill out the nihilistic cartoon that has persisted in pop culture. --The Observer"

An accurate reflection of the man it seeks to portray: unique, uncompromising, and . . . fascinating. --Mail on Sunday"

From the Back Cover

From the legendary front man of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd comes the complete, unvarnished story of his life in his own words
