Product description

Review

The prose is strikingly raw... the cumulative effect is curiously touching. (OBSERVER)

This book is like everything else Pete Doherty has ever done - at times brilliant, at others annoying, but never less than interesting. (SOUTHERN DAILY ECHO)

These diary entries, childhood reminiscenes and prose from 1999 onwards prove that under the drug hoover's brow there's a unique brain. (Q MAGAZINE)

witty and sensitive (SUNDAY TRIBUNE)

there are moments of joy, humourand, of course, real darkness (IRISH EXAMINER)

At times a curiously affecting work, it chronicles Doherty's transitionfrom aspiring poet and flowering teenage talent to a man increasingly fighting to shine through a chemicaly induced haze... Doherty can write beautifully (Steve Cummins IRISH DAILY MAIL ON SUNDAY) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

Pete Doherty's journals from 1999 to the present day - an intimate insight into one of the music world's most talented and controversial figures.
